    This is a large, clear glass horse head - with a beautiful luster to it. it almost glows wherever it is. it appears to be a cover of some kind. i posted a much smaller one recently which someone here was able to identify. this piece is much larger - and much more beautiful in my opinion.

      Hi, I love your piece. Check out Viking (Dalzelt). They made a lot of handmade glass pieces. I believe they went out of business in the 1980's.
      I do not believe it is a bookend, although I suppose you could use it for one.
      Ciao!! Hope this helps.

      They could also be Federal Glass HorseHead Bookends, Circa 1950's. Difficult to find a pair.

      thanks everyone!! TC hit the nail on the head in the first response - it is a Federal Glass Horsehead Bookend - one of a pair. i like it as it is and will look for a cool place for it in the nursery this afternoon. thanks everyone!!

      I think if this was mine, I'd wanna make a simple, unobtrusive wooden base for it (not unlike what looks like a chunk of green marble it is pictured sitting on?) fitted with a small socket for a little (probably 7w blue x-mas tree/nightlight type) lightbulb...?? ;-) :-)
      But then again, I guess I do have a slightly unnatural fondness for 'things that light up', whether originally intended to or not...?? <lol>
