Telephone handset bookends

Here is a pair of white telephone handset bookends.  The heavy bases of the bookends appear to be marble.  The plastic is yellowed, as is typical for white plastic of the era, but otherwise good condition.  Each measures approximately 9” height by 2-1/2” width by 6” length.

eBay item 321979723781 ended on January 23, 2016 at 10:09AM.  The bookends were listed at $150 but sold at best offer.
