Egyptian Motif Bookends 

with a Secret Compartment 

Here is an old set of cast iron bookends with an Egyptian motif.  According to these ancient people, Egypt was not just an earthly locality, but a reflection of Heaven itself.  To them, the world, the universe and man mirrored each other.  In the back is a secret compartment covered with a plate and four screws.   They measure approximately 6 1/2 inches tall by 6 inches wide by 2 inches deep.
