    Hello CW friends!!

    Today, we have my 1949 Virginia Metalcrafters "Dream Boy" Cocker Spaniel door stop collection. I've had #2 and #3 for many years, but just acquired #1.

    #1 and #3 are solid brass and #2 is made of cast iron. They're each 9" tall and 7" at their widest point. Each weighs about 2 lbs. They're all signed! I love these guys and they're all really in pristine condition.

    A bit of Virginia Metalcrafters History:
    Perhaps the greatest American brass company of the 20th century was Virginia Metalcrafters. The company started as a stove manufacturer, early on making, of all things, the Hotpoint brand. Begun by William J. Loth as the Waynesboro Stove Company, it was born at a time when there were many regional iron foundries and stove makers. As electric appliances took over, most of these companies shut down, unable to adapt. However, Virginia Metalcrafters figured out a way to survive. In 1936, it became Virginia Metalcrafters, selling unique household items to that new, sensational American tourist attraction, Colonial Williamsburg.

    Thanks for stopping and having a look!

    Scott
