Hubley Manufacturing Company was incorporated in 1894 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania by John Hubley. The first Hubley toys in 1909 were made of cast iron and ranged from horse-drawn vehicles and different breeds of dogs to tractors, steam shovels and guns. They were especially known for their many motorcycles which often included side cars or hooked to delivery vans. In the late 1930s household items such as doorstops and bookends were also produced. But automobiles, trucks and airplanes gradually became their mainstay. This doorstop is 7 ¼” tall and the base is 4 ½” wide. It is a cream color wicker basket with handle full of daisies and roses. The pink, blue and green colors have faded over the years and there is loss of paint, especially around the base. It is lightly incised with the number 152 on the back. It weighs a hefty 2 lbs. 8 oz.
