A single heavy cast iron bookend with the character Dolly Dingle, a little boy and a dog. All three have painted blue eyes, the boy and girl have painted blond hair, and Dolly's dress has green paint. The original paint is mostly worn away from these charming figures. Made in the US circa 1920 the bookend measures 4-3/4 inches in height, 4-1/4 inches in width and 1-5/8 inches in depth. Given the weight (nearly 3 pounds) it could be a doorstop. There is no maker's mark.
