    Hello CW friends!!

    This is my cast iron English Bulldog Puppy doorstop. I think this one is very unique. I've not seen another one like it. It is a high quality casting. Most you see today are very rough castings and carelessly done. Not this one.
    This one is very highly detailed and well cast.

    This one is fair size at about 14" long and about 7" tall. It weighs 13.5 lbs. So, you wouldn't want to drop these little fellows on your foot.

    I've not really found any markings to indicate the maker and I'm not sure of it's age. Guessing the 1960's or 1970's. It appears to have a marking on one of the puppies' back in photo #1, but if it is, I can't quite make it out.

    Thanks for stopping in to have a look at my puppies!

    Scott

      Another nice one Scott. I am a little puzzled by this one. Because of the relief in the shape of this, the only way I see this could have been cast is by the lost wax method.
      It looks more like an actual sculpture.
      Is it hollow on the bottom? Does a magnet stick to it?
    22. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Tom,
      Thanks! It is hollow and a magnet does in fact stick to it.

      vintagelamp,
      Thanks for the love and for stopping by. Always very much appreciated!!
    24. AzTom AzTom, 3 years ago
      That is still strange to me. Does it look it was molded in two pieces and joined together?

      I can't see how even one side of that would have been removed from the mold without damaging it.
    25. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Tom,
      I has no seams anywhere that would indicate it was molded in two pieces and then assembled afterwards. It's a very clean piece and really nicely done. I wish I knew who the manufacturer was.
      It's hollow, but a very heavy cast iron piece (has a bit of rust on it in few places). It's quite puzzling to me as well.
