    I found these owls some time ago. Simple, cast iron, bookends. Haven't been able to find any information about them. Does anyone recognize the style?

      Maybe Brutalist style?
    3. Janes, 9 years ago
      Thanks. I wasn't familiar with Brutalist. A good place to start.

      Are you sure they are bookends? They look like something used in front of a Fireplace...andirons maybe, which would explain their state. RER(BOB)
    6. Janes, 9 years ago
      No. They are bookends, not andirons. The photo doesn't show the colors much. Lot's of different colors, green, copper, browns, and black.

      Interesting, I wonder how many people would scratch up a book shelf using cast iron book ends.
    8. Janes, 9 years ago
      They are pretty smooth, but they are heavy.
