Hello CW Friends!!
I bought this cast iron penguin at an online auction, but this one's not a doorstop. Although, I guess he could be used as one if you so desired.
He's hollow inside, but, as you can see, he's sealed on the bottom. He measures 12" tall and 7" at his widest point. There are no seams that I can see. So, I'm a bit puzzled as to how he was cast.
He was severely rusted and I thoroughly cleaned him with steel wool and painted him. There are no makers marks on this penguin, so I'm not sure who made this one. I'm willing to believe this one was made in the early 1970's.
Thanks for taking the time to stop in and have a look!!
