Snatched these up today - machined out of solid brass, 2 3/4" (7cm) tall. You wouldn't want to drop one on your toes - they each weigh just about 35 ounces (just a hair under 1 kilo each). I haven't cleaned the old felt off the bases yet to see if there's a mark or sig there. What think you folks? Art Deco era, or more space age/mid century-ish? Thanks for taking a look!
