Nice antique cast iron Pointer dog door stop made by Hubley in great all original condition. Lots of nice casting details and great original paint & patina. This is a rather unusual piece in that Hubley made many of these large size Pointer door stops.
However, this one is mounted on a decorative wood base which holds a small oval plaque that. Reads "Compliments of Quaker State Oil & Refinery". Quaker State Oil was established in Pennsylvania around 1912. I believe Quaker State contracted.
With Hubley to make these "Custom" examples kind of like a trophy. Quaker State then gave these. To its major distributors or retiring executives as a parting gift. All that being said, there are probably only a small quantity of these ever made.
The Pointer dog is a huge two-part casting that was mounted on a decorative wood base. The dog and the base were painted a mustard gold color that has mellowed nicely.
Gold color gives the piece a sense of class kind of like a trophy. This has a real dominant. Presence and is quite striking. The finished product is about 15" x 9 1/2" and weighs almost 9 pounds. I'm not sure what the connection was between Quaker State and a Pointer dog.But there must have been some reason they decided to use it. A nice whimsical piece of Americana. You will not be disappointed with this quite unusual example. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Metalware\Cast Iron".
