These old antique cast iron frogs were used as door stops or paper weights. The paint on this frog is the best I have seen yet. The paint job has aged well and shows some cast iron through where. A great authenic 1800's decoration that would add beauty and charm to your home or office.These were used to hold a door open or just as decorations. Be new or a reproduction.
Usually the heavier they are, the older they are. Reproductions were made light to save cast iron. This frog a a depression in the underside which makes it one of the older ones. The oldest frogs were heavy becuase they were using up iron at the end of a pour. The paint on the frog is an old green color paint that has aged well and shows some cast iron through where the paint has worn.
The paint has a few wear. Spots giving it a great old look. It takes alot of time to get iron and paint that looks this good.
The iron has nice texture and the paint has a few bubbles and runs. Every one of these frogs I have ever seen was painted different. It is 4 1/2 wide. It is 5.5 pounds of cast iron.Visit our store for more great items! I have over a 15,000 feedback record history. I can't guarantee I will remember to fix wrong adresses.
