Sailing Towards Christmas


Hubley Cast Iron "Spanish Galleon" Doorstop with Aged, Original Hand-Painting (LEO Design)


True, Christmas is eleven months away.  But it is coming!

This cast iron "Spanish Galleon" doorstop was made by Hubley (Lancaster, PA) in the Twenties or Thirties.  It still has much of its original hand-painted color—though that paint is now well-aged (and full of character).  Imagine this doorstop holding the door (or decorating the mantelpiece) of your favorite sailor's den or office.  And imagine what style it would bring to someone's house at the shore.
