VINTAGE CAST IRON JOCKO LAWN JOCKEY. This was my grandmother’s lawn jockey and was utilized as a door stop in her kitchen for many years. Now it is ready to find a new home. Fantastic original American lawn jockey portraying Jocko Graves a famous 12 year-old boy. Wearing his worn paint, this Jocko hitching post offers a glimpse into the past and history around the figure. It is an original cast iron door stop and stands about 11.5 tall. Overall very good condition with some age wear/marks. Please see the photos for details. BACKGROUND: A lawn jockey is a small statue of a man in jockey attire, intended to be placed in yards. Most today are white jockeys, but historically black jockeys were commonplace. The lawn ornament, popular in certain parts of the United States in years past, was a cast replica, usually about half-scale, of a black man dressed in jockey’s clothing and holding up one hand as though taking the reins of a horse. The hand sometimes carries a lantern or a metal ring suitable for hitching a horse. This includes additional photos and details regarding this item.
