    Cute pair of glass horse heads. Kind of has a 1930s feel to the design. I am guessing that they are bookends. What do y'all think?

      They most definitely are bookends and my wife had several sets of these, a couple years ago. They were actually made in the 1950s. Hopefully yours don't have any chips in the glass, it's pretty hard to find a set without any chips in them. They don't have a huge value however. There's still plenty of them out there from what we've seen over the years. Most times you only find one piece of the pair at a time, in antique malls and thrift shops.

      If you want to keep them, here's an idea. We took some bright red spray paint and painted the inside, it's a cool effect and brings a little color to them.
