FRED EVERETT (On Front @ bottom left in the Grass)
458 (Engraved On the Back)
Fred Everett wrote and illustrated three books, Wild Ducks (1946) Fun With Trout (1952) and Fun With Game Birds (1954).
Fred Everett sculpted 3 painted models from which Hubley cast 3 doorstops:
3 GEESE -- --- Mold # 457
PHEASANT -- Mold #458
QUAIL -------- Mold # 459
All were signed on the front with " FRED EVERETT " (in the grass)
This marking did not disturb the view of the Wildlife because it was not obvious to the eye.
All Everettt Doorstops had their mold numbers engraved on the Back except this one, the Quail.
