UPDATE: After posting this door stop a couple of days ago, I learned that our elephant is a Hubley, dating back to 1925. So he’s nearly 100 years old, and was created by the well-known Hubley Manufacturing Company, which was acquired by another company in 1965 and stopped producing shortly thereafter.
Hubley cast iron door stops are carefully crafted and highly sought after by collectors. I verified through research that this is indeed a Hubley.
Elephants evoke such a sense of awe. They are such calm and peaceful beasts – until provoked, anyway. There is much I could write about my admiration for their intelligence, family centeredness and brute strength.
According to a Google search, the elephant stands for power and patience. “Seeing an elephant in your dream may be a reminder to be patient and strong through a difficult situation.”
Our cast iron elephant door stop is a good reminder of two characteristics we could all emulate..
