HISTORY - The Manufacturing Co. Was incorporated in 1894 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and produced hand painted cast-iron toys and household objects such as doorstops, bookends and bottle openers with themes that ranged from different breeds of dogs, to horses and cars. In the casting process, metalworkers would carve out a wooden form or hammer the design out in metal.
The form was then pressed into finely compacted sand, making an impression, and the cast iron was heated to 3000 degrees which was then poured into the sand mold. In the decorating department, painters applied a base coat of white, cream or black to the piece and colorists used a variety of hues to achieve defining features. Many late 1930 items bear identical color schemes, suggesting that decorators may have copied a model finished by a master artisan, and many earlier items had more artistic expressive color schemes. Being that I refuse to open up and break the seal on the "Boston Bull" diminishing its worth and ruining the pieces integrity I was told to change the listing.This item is in the category "Collectibles\Animals\Dogs\Boston Terrier". The seller is "jorello" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to North, South, or Latin America, all countries in Europe, all countries in continental Asia, Australia.
