Background information: A belfry is the place in a church or a school building where bells are housed. And when you have bats in your belfry, it means you're eccentric or nutty. Good to know.

These rarely seen bookends were made in 1928 by the Connecticut Foundry, alongside the Connecticut River in Rocky Hill. The Foundry closed down years ago but the dilapidated buildings still stand at the foot of Glastonbury Avenue in Rocky Hill. (The buildings are now slated to be torn down.)
These are 6 inches tall, 3.9 inches wide, 2.2 inches deep. In fine condition with lovely patina. Marked 1928 with the Foundry's signature--a C inside a triangle, both inside a circle.
