Lord of the Rings Argonath bookends are a pair of sculptures offered as part of a special-edition Lord of the Rings DVD Box Set.

Background

The pair of bookends was part of the 2001 Platinum Series Special Extended Edition Collector's Gift Set edition of the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring DVD.

The Lord of the Rings Argonath bookends

The sculptures were originally intended for use as bookends, but can also be used simply as decorative figurines. They depict the two large carved stone pillars of the Gate of Kings, giant statues of Isildur and Anárion which stand either side of a river as a monumental gateway in Tolkein’s Middle Earth. The pillars are seen during a scene in Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.

The bookends were designed by sculptor Mary Machlachlan, and produced by Sideshow Weta, the New Zealand workshop responsible for the special effects in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

How much are Lord of the Rings Argonath bookends worth?

The bookends were given away as a gift with the DVD and were never available to purchase separately. They can be found on sites such as eBay in their original packaging for between $20 and $40.
