Collectible Hubley Persian Cat Cast Iron Doorstop Mark
HERE IS A VINTAGE, COLLECTIBLE, HUBLEY METAL FIGURAL SCULPTURE OF A PERSIAN CAT IN THE FORM OF A DOORSTOP. IT IS CAST IRON WITH A WHITE PAINTED FINISH. THE DETAIL OF THE CAT’S FEATURES IS CLEAR AND PRECISE. THIS FIGURAL MEASURES 9 INCHES HIGH; 6 1/2 INCHES DIAMETER AT THE BASE; AND 5 INCHES IN DEPTH. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL CASTING IN TWO PIECES AND BEARS THE “HUBLEY” MARK AND A NUMBER WHICH IS NOT IDENTIFIABLE ON THE UNDERSIDE. THE PAINTING IS HARDER TO DESCRIBE AS IT APPEARS THIS DOORSTOP MAY HAVE BEEN PAINTED GRAY INITIALLY WITH HIGHLIGHTS OF THE INNER EARS, NOSE, EYES AND MOUTH IN PINK, RED, BLACK, YELLOW AND GREEN. A REPAINT IN A WHITE COLOR HAS OCCURED AT SOMETIME DURING ITS LIFETIME LEAVING FAINT TRACES OF THE HIGHLIGHTS; AND MUCH OF THE SECONDARY PAINT HAS DISAPPEARED THROUGH ITS AGE AND HARD USE. THIS VERY FINE DETAILED CASTING OF A PERSIAN CAT COULD SERVE MULTIPLE PURPOSES—A DOORSTOP, A BOOKEND, OR AN ARTISTIC METAL SCULPTURE—ON A TABLE, DESK, SHELF, MANTLE, OR COUNTER. A “MUST HAVE” FOR THOSE CAT LOVERS, OR PERSIAN CAT OWNERS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIEWING. PLEASE CHECK MY OTHER LISTINGS FOR ADDITIONAL VINTAGE ANTIQUE AND COLLECTIBLE ITEMS.
