A cast iron Basset Hound boot scraper from my collection. The only Basset Hound in my collection. With that being said, I've heard some refer to this as a Dachshund and others refer to it as a Beagle. Given the colors and the droopy ears, I've always stuck with Basset Hound. It's a two piece design held together with two screws. I have cleaned and repainted him as he looked pretty bad when I originally got him. I do not believe this one is very old, but more than likely from the 1980's or 1990's. Regardless, I still really like him and have him proudly displayed in our home. I do have a few reproductions and some later designs, such as this, in my collection as they too can be a lot of fun to collect. Though it's a boot scraper, we've actually only used it as a doorstop. He's about 13" long, 5" tall and 4" at the widest point.
Thanks for stopping in to see my Basset Hound!
