This unusual pair of cast iron retrievers were originally intended as wall ornaments - one still has the hanging ring soldered to the back. They could be used as bookends although their plinths are fairly narrow. Certainly decorative for collectors of retrievers items. With no identifying marks it is difficult to ascertain where they were made in the early 20th century. They measure 6 inches wide by 3-3/4 inches high.

This is a painted aluminum horse decoration for the gate or fence of a stable or ranch. It is a nicely molded flat ornament with the original brown paint. There are two sets of holes on the back through which wires would attach the ornament to a gate or fence, as shown in the photo. I believe it is made of cast aluminum rather than another metal - the horse weighs just under 1-1/2 pounds. It measures 12-1/2 inches in length and 10-1/2 inches in height, with no condition issues.

A pointing dog made of cast iron with original paint, white with black spots, a setter possibly made by Hubley though unmarked. The year of manufacture would be difficult to determine as there are no identifying marks. In very good paint with minor rubbing, and very charming. The dog measures 4-1/2 inches in length and 2-3/4 inches in height.
