A newly acquired Cast iron doorstop made by Albany Foundry Co. in approx.1924. What makes it so unusual is the black and white Graniteware porcelain finish with some red accents on the head and the green eyes, Original to the piece and extremely rare. Plus it is 99+ on color with only a couple of very small chips.

He is so cute! What should we look for when evaluating the authentic old ones from the ( over abundance) of fakes nowadays?

Below is my latest Hubley Model #220 3-piece cast iron bank. Has a few more wear than some of the others but still in excellent condition for a 90 year old dog.

Thanks for the comments Vicki. All of mine are real with the possible exception of the Hubley pup. Everything looks good on him except someone drilled out the heads of both screws which leads me to think they may have been phillips screws. Tomorrow I will be adding some new pictures of some others, both banks and doorstops. ALL ORIGINALS

Hi Randy, I like them to. But there are so many fakes that I don't deal much in them. I just love that pig! He's adorable!

I also love the Hubley pup! He looks so realistic! I used to have a hubley bull dog, but someone had repainted him, so most value was gone, but my son liked him, so its his know. :)

Another doorstop, This one by Hubley. Clearly marked and with original paint. Have seen a couple and not sure why but the are all white with heart-shaped black spots. This on was obviously the target of some young mans BB gun. Lost some paint but gained some well earned character and patina.

Doorstop by Creations Company out of Lancaster Pa.. They were only in business for one year in 1930 then died with the great depression. Horrible timing!

I'm going to make an arbitrary decision, unless somebody objects, to add antique/vintage cast iron doorstops to this site also. Any objections? No? Okay, done!

I never thought I would have a passion for something that only I had an interest in. Has the economy become so bad that only I have an interest in banks? I guess I get to have this site all to myself.
