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?

    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, 4 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, 4 years ago
    They are pretty smooth, but they are heavy.
