L272 HUBLEY COCKER SPANIEL DOORSTOP CAST IRON DOG VINTAGE 4" SOLID CAST FULL FIG
We are pleased to offer this outstanding cast iron Cocker Spaniel oorstop for your offerding consideration. We believe that this is an intermediate sized Hubley cast iron doorstop. It has many features that resemble Hubley's 1920's - #487 door stop that measures 11" long and 7" tall. Our adorable spaniel measures 7" long and 4" tall and weighs 5 pounds. If he is a Hubley 1920's spaniel he's worth approximately $300 or more ... and if he is a 1950's recreation he's still worth at least $100. Our experts note that the nap of the fur appears to be identical to the photo found on page #133 of "The Doorstop Book An Encyclopedia Of Doorstop Collecting" by John C. & Nancy M. Smith. And the white breast features what appear to be the original stack oval forms. As we cannot match this size we invite our expert buyers to make the final call. Regardless of his age, he will be a delightful addition to a Cocker Spaniel or a door stop collection. A little Hubley history ... The Hubley Manufacturing Company began in 1894 and produced cast iron toys and household objects such as bookends and doorstops. The products were painted by hand, which has raised the value with collectors who prize the items for their uniqueness and history. Authentic Hubleys will feel smooth to the touch, not rough or bumpy. The quality of the metalwork on Hubley items was excellent and great attention was paid to detail.
