Pair of bookends. Each bookend is a solid metal figure affixed to a wooden base. On one is the golfer measuring 9½" tall, on the other is his caddie measuring 6½" tall. Green felt on bottom of bases. No identification markings.

The classic pair was originally cast in the 1920s, and have been reproduced many times as bookends and ashtrays, and even large concrete statues. This pair is a lovely example of the golfer and his youthful caddie. Olman's Golf Antiques & Other Treasures. p. 181.
