MARKING (on back):
Note 1 :   (Reason This Doorstop is Not Considered Antique)
Robert Emig Company of Reading, PA was in operation in the 1950s and 1960s.
This does not meet our desire to illustrate "Pre- 1948" Cast Iron Doorstops.
1948 signaled the demise for the last great American foundry - Hubley
and the year John Wright bought Hubley's Molds and started making reproductions.
