This nice pair of Boston Terrier bulldog bookends are unusual in that they are made of aluminum and not cast iron. They are wearing nice buckle and studded collars one being silver and the other black. They measure 5 x 5 inches and are unmarked. The famous Hubley Co. made very similiar bookends in iron and I'm wondering if these aren't salesman samples or simply lighter metal copies. They have some finish irregularities with some indents in places and back legs of one dog. The dog on the left has a crack to a front leg near the ankle that doesn't go all the way through and it is very stable. A nice pair of vintage bookends done in the old style of the breed.
