Figural Elephant Stomping on Tiger - Cast Iron Bookends - 1920s

This is a cast iron figural pair of bookends depicting an elephant stomping on a tiger. They are quite heavy, weighing over 6 pounds unpacked. They measure approximately 4 1/4" high and a little over 5" long. Kuritzsky's bookend guide refers to them as "Trouble Underfoot." The same bookends were made both by Hubley and Littco.

I don't see a maker's name or mark. Kuritzsky shows them as being made by Littco, and Littco often used a paper label. Other sources say that they were also made by Hubley and were unmarked.

In any event, they are really beautiful bookends with a nice patina. I don't see any damage.
