SALE Take a look at this very old and beautiful Cast Iron Basket of Colorful Flowers Doorstop! I believe there is a mixture of old paint and some touch-up paint as well, because the back looks like it has a fresh coat of off white paint all over. If this piece is marked, it is underneath that paint, but it is very much like some of the Hubley baskets of flowers, so I'm unsure of the maker. It weighs nearly 5 lbs before packing, so I'm thinking the best method of shipping would be a Medium Flat Rate Priority box, but I can ship it just by the pounds if you choose.
I thought the flowers were pansies, but some of them look different, so I guess it's a mixed bouquet. Besides the greens in the basket, there are yellow, red and even some almost brown flowers...perhaps those are the flowers that have already turned and are ready to be cut to make room for brand new blooms. It is a beautiful door stop, or if you had a similar one, you could even use for bookends. I think they are pretty just to display all the different ones made in this era. You won't be disappointed to add this heavy and colorful doorstop to your collection of Hubley and other Cast Iron pieces.
