John Wright bought the old Hubley doorstop molds and began his replicating these styles in the early 1940s. These newer issues of Hubley styles are marked with an embossed rectangle. A number of modern reproductions mimicking older doorstop styles have also been introduced into the secondary marketplace, and some of them are chipped and rusted purposely to look old. According to marking information provided on doorstops.com, any doorstop marked with “CN” is a reproduction.
The oversized cast iron Fox Terrier doorstop (#381) depicted here sold for $1,840 at Morphy Auctions in December 2008. The outstanding condition of this example helped boost the value above auction estimates.
