This is a Hubley English Bulldog Doorstop in the rarest of styles (not the same shape as their 3 piece banks) with tons of patina. Read: lots of weathering with about 50-60% of it's original paint still intact. Not the prettiest but with it's rarity and expense, I'm just glad to have found one.

about 6 1/2" X 5 1/4" overall tall

I have also acquired two chicken banks. Not sure of the maker but they are beautifully cast and have polychrome paint. both have beautiful original paint with one of them looking as if has just been removed from it's box. The method of painting and the design of the castings makes me believe they may be Hubley but not 100% positive.

I also added a Hubley kitten bank with original paint. I love the green eyes and the hand painted bow with the little flowers. I don't believe it has ever been opened and I will not attempt.

Just purchased an Arcade Elephant bank with original label! Love the color and have been looking for a good one with the label for a long time. Success is sweet!

adding some new additions. First is a Cast aluminum dirigible I just acquired and have not been able to find any history on. It is approx. 13" X 1 3/4", which makes it almost perfectly proportioned to the real thing. The Graf Zeppelin is of the same type as the infamous Hindenburg, but the LZ127 was built first and traveled over one million miles and was retired when the Hindenburg exploded.

Craig, I'm so glad to see someone else on this site. Beautiful bank....these were also make by Hubley but the tail was connected to the rear left foot. I would also investigate Arcade. They used the red for some of their banks. More pictures, especially the underside and the seams would be helpful, also dimensions are extremely helpful.

ahh! I see! Thanks very much Randy, that does help quite a bit. At least I will understand one bully dog from another!

They are all so cute! I like them to, I just don't have room for any more "Collections" :)
