These beautiful metal Bookmarks are the perfect 6th Iron Wedding Anniversary keepsake that your partner can treasure forever.
Hand forged using the hammer and anvil, no two will ever be the same - each hammer blow creating unique patterns on the steel.
Once shaped, the metal is cleaned & polished to a high shine, then treated with wax to create a protective and attractive patina.
I hand stamp your personal message on the Bookmark using individual vintage letter punches. A time consuming process but one that results in an undeniably unique, hand crafted item! There's NO engraving in my shop!!!
There are two designs available-
- Scrolled - The bookmark has been curled over at the top so you can keep your page.
- Punched Leather - A hole has been punched through the Bookmark to hold a length of leather cord.
Fast Processing and Wordwide Shipping.

I only use natural products to treat the iron. All items are treated with either Beeswax or 'Renaissance Wax' to provide a protective and attractive finish. I recommend that you occasionally treat the iron with a beeswax or similar natural polish, this will build a beautiful patina and keep the iron looking tip top. Simply apply some wax and buff to a high shine.
As no lacquers or paints are used to treat the iron then over time, and if there is significant moisture in the air, rust spots may begin to appear. if this does happen gently remove the rust with wire wool and apply a coat of natural wax as detailed above. Given a little care and attention the ironwork will last for centuries!

I do not engrave!!!
Due to the fact that each letter is individually stamped by hand, text may not always perfectly align. I'm not a machine, but I do have a highly trained eye! I'm sure you appreciate that this is the real beauty of hand made work!

I usually spot spellink mistukes but cannot be held responsible if I stamp a message that does have typo's or grammatical errors!
