Here's one of my favorites of the cast iron Scotty dog doorstop collection. This one was made by Hubley in the very early 1900's and listed in their catalog as #412 "Sitting Scottie". The detail that Hubley put into this one is just amazing to me. From her sitting on her rear paw to the highly detailed coat and the cute little red studded collar. I'd expect that with bronze, but not with cast iron. She's a two piece design held together with two screws and larger than most doorstops, measuring 11 3/4" tall and 16" long. She weighs nearly 12lbs!! Pic #4 shows what she looked like when I took ownership of her. I like to think that she's relieved to be back to her original self again.
Thanks for stopping in for a look!!!
