Very rare pair of early original antique bookends featuring a military soldier from World War One known as a Doughboy.  The solder is standing armed with a rifle in front of a barbed wire fence with an explosion in the sky.  This set was made by Hubley Manufacturing, Lancaster, PA.  Circa 1919.  Each bookend stands 6" tall, 5" wide, 2" deep and weighs 2 lbs. 2 oz. (4 lbs. 4 oz. for the pair).  They are in very good condition.  This set is made of solid cast iron with a bronze finish.  It is completely original with no touch-ups.  There are no breaks or repairs.  Authenticity is assured as both are incised with the Hubley number 695 on the rear.
