    Hello CW friends!!

    My wife totally surprised me and gifted me with this wonderful vintage cast iron Dachshund boot scraper on Christmas day. She said that she had seen me admiring this boot scraper, in an old local antique shop, on a couple of occasions and decided to make it my Christmas gift.

    She couldn't have done any better, as far as Christmas gifts go. I love this big fellow!! He's over 21" long, stands 7 1/2" tall and is 7 1/2 inches at his widest point. He's solid and weighs in at a whopping 27 lbs!!! So, you wouldn't want to stub you toe on this guy.

    I do not know the age or make of this boot scraper, but perhaps one of you may be able to tell me a bit about him and approximately how old he is. So far, based on web searches, I believe this big fellow was made around 1930 or so.

    He still retains quite a bit of his original paint, even the original red paint inside his mouth remains. Though a lot of his original paint is not all there, he still looks great to me.

    Thanks everyone for stopping to have a look at my Dachshund boot scraper!!

    Scott

      He's wonderful Scott; picked by a gem for a gem!

      ho2cultcha,
      Thanks!! I remember these as a child as well. There were a few different styles of these. Some with a tongue, like what Hubley made, and some were actually anatomically correct.

      Karen,
      Thanks so much! You're very kind. Oh, and "Gesundheit":)

      fortapache,
      Thank you! She did do well. It was quite a surprise. It was a bit heavy for her to wrap, so one of my boys had to carry it in on Christmas morning!

      LOL Cindy!!!
      Yep, you're absolutely right about that. I have him in a spot where you'd really have to go far out of your way to stub your toe on this fellow! Thanks very much and I'm so glad you like him!!

      When I first saw the photo Scott, I thought to myself, how could somebody use this without knocking it over. Then I saw the size and the weight... wow is it big and heavy! Congrats on your wonderful Christmas gift :-)
    22. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Rick,
      Thanks!! It's so long that I had to lie on the floor to photograph it:) He's so heavy that my wife had to get one of my sons to carry it in on Christmas morning!!!!

    25. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      LOL fleafinder!!! Yep, my wife is a sweetie for sure! Usually when I see something I like, she always says it's far too expensive. So, I was totally surprised when she gave me this Dachshund boot scraper.

      OMG, how cool is that of your wife? I'm sure you love it and need it. Getting the boots off can be quite the task with your hands full coming in from the weather. I love it!!
      There is a cast iron alligator one here in a local shop for $30.00 and they have it marked as a boot remover. It really works! If you put the heal of the boot in the mouth while standing on the back you don't have to bend over. Give it a try!
    32. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Thanks Tonja!!
      I also have a smaller size reproduction of the Dachshund boot scraper as well. We paid something like $20 for that one. The old cast iron boot jacks also came in a variety of creatures from crickets to mermaids. There are a lot of reproductions available on the market today for a pretty low price. But, the repros are really easy to spot. The castings are really rough and they also have pretty rough edges. Thanks for the comment, the love and for dropping by. Many thanks!!!
