SPECIALLY REDUCED FOR SEPTEMBER: This is a truly good example of the scarce brown Boston Terrier dog door stops that were made by the Hubley Company in the early 1900s. It is ALL ORIGINAL, very well made and in exceptionally good condition with minor flakes in the paint. The figure is terrific itself, with the little dog not only having correct body proportions but also emanating the sparkling, happy character of this mischievous, adorable breed.
At approximately 9 inches tall, this is the full-size door stop. It is quality cast iron with NO rust, NO cracks, chips, splits or breaks and NO repairs. The mold seams are tight with minimal filing -- exceptional craftsmanship! IMPORTANT: See our picture with the green arrow: The original bolt holding the sides together is firmly in place on the dog's left side, UNDER the original antique paint, documenting authenticity and age.
The color is shades of rich mahogany brown ranging from nearly black to warm chestnut. A white blaze and muzzle, white chest and four white stockings add attractive trim, just like a real Boston Terrier. A fine line of red defines the mouth.
There is no collar on this pup. Usually a "collar" is painted on, but our doggie does not have one.
Boston Terriers are usually black with dapper white markings but scarcer colors include brown and brindle. They are also called Boston Bull or Boston Bulldog. The American Kennel Club (AKC) includes them in the Non-Sporting Group, 19 different breeds of various personalities and appearances, that excel as companions.
What a superb addition to any grouping of better doorstops.
