Art Deco Metal Cast Iron Original Paint Floral Bookends

's a pair of old vintage likely 1920s or 1930s likely American-made cast iron metal pair of bookends that each measure 2 1/8" x 4 3/8" x 4 3/4". They have good weight and thickness and they both have a strong Art Deco stylized design of colorful flowers on black. I am not an expert but I believe this is original paint. The bottoms have old black felt.

I am not sure who the designer was or which company made these. Each has an impressed 1/4" number 32 on the back. These attractive choice Art Deco examples are in very good condition with some paint loss and wear. This item is featured in a book on cast iron objects at a very lofty price.
