Vintage pair of ceramic, black French poodle bookends that were made in Japan, circa 1960. They are rather lightweight for books, and I picture them on a desk holding mail, or catalogs. They are 6&1/4 inches tall, and have protective felt on the bottoms. Each has a "Made in Japan" sticker. They have gold painted accents, and are just adorable. There is very minor wear to the gold paint. No chips or cracks.
