Posted By: <b>Aaron M.</b><p>Hey, Joe. Earlier this year I picked up one of these. I use mine as a door-stop. (I think when someone sells a pair, they're called book-ends, and when someone sells one individually it's called a door-stop.) <br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1181071316.JPG">

Posted By: <b>joe</b><p>Max, if I ever sell them I will let you know. Aaron, yes used as doorstops also, here are 2 more. I think these were more modern made from original modes.<br /><br />Joe<br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1181090367.JPG"> <br><br>Ty Cobb, Spikes flying!

Posted By: <b>Max Weder</b><p>Joe<br /><br />What are the dimensions on these? There's one on ebay now (buy it now at $325 or best offer), posted image below. Is there anyway to tell whether a bookend/doorstep is vintage or a later casting?<br /><br />Thanks<br /><br />Max<br /><br /><img src="http://www.barleyneckusa.com/images/aab58.JPG">

Posted By: <b>joe</b><p>Aaron, is the Tiger Doorstop flat on the back or embossed just like the front is? Send me an email to JMAPLES0871@CHARTER.NET if it is embossed on the back side.<br /><br />Joe<br><br>Ty Cobb, Spikes flying!
