Antique Hubley Cast Iron French Bull Dog Door Stop. Oh, so antique and adorable! Preowned; it does show signs of use and ware. Nice seams; square slotted screw. To create these cast iron doorstops, metalworkers carved a wooden form or hammered the design out of metal. The form was pressed into sand, making an impression, then hot cast iron was poured into the sand mold. When cool, the form was removed from the sand and the rough edges were filed down. A base coat was applied and then artists would add all the little details. After World War II, die-cast zinc replaced cast iron. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Metalware\Cast Iron”.
