Extremely rare original set of antique french art deco bookends featuring the elegant Greyhound or Whippet dogs.  One dog is a male, the other a female.  They are both in play positions, the male has his paw raised hoping to interest the female in a romp.  The female is crouched and waiting to pounce.  Fabulous.  The dogs are made of metal with a pottery finish.  The bases are black stone.  Each bookend stands 5 1/2" tall, 7 7/8" long, 3 1/8" wide and weighs 3 lbs. 11 oz. (7 lbs. 6 oz. for the pair).  They are in very good original condition. There are minor chips in the stone. The dog's are firmly attached to the base.  Authenticity is assured as both dogs are marked MADE IN FRANCE on their hindquarters.  We have never seen a set like this coupled with having complementary molds and in such great condition makes it an extremely rare and valuable addition to any serious collection.
