Cast Iron Cats by Hubley- Sitting
Cast Iron Cats by Hubley- Sitting (both are included in package).
Our sitting cats are beckoning for a new home! Hubley made similar animal items and these cats have the same built-in personality. The eyes are hand painted on a base color of black and white. The ears and other accents make this door stop set pop.
Condition is old and original with dust and some scuffs as shown. The Hubley mark can be seen on the stop’s base inside wall.
Hubley Mfg. Co. Lancaster, Pennsylvania
1894 to date
Slogan: “They`re Different”
Founder: John E. Hubley
Specialty: Brand name: Lancaster Brand Iron Toys. Originally manufactured electric toy train equipment and parts. Purchased Safety Buggy Co. factory and moved to site in 1909. First manufactured cast-iron toys, horse-drawn wagons and fire engines, circus trains, and cap guns. Toy autos became the headliners in 1930s. By quickly converting to cheaper smaller toys during the Depression, they avoided financial woes experienced by many other toy companies. Iron shortages in WWII and commitments to fill war contracts did stop the toy division in 1942, until after the war.. The name was later changed to Gabriel Industries and still existed as a division of CBS as of 1978.
