We're sharing this cool cat from the permanent collection in celebration of National Cat Day, an annual holiday to raise awareness for cat adoption.



Designed and sold as a door stop, the ad for this Art Deco feline read: “For the feline fancier! Here’s a door stop with no pretty pink flowers, no Dutch windmills, no little girls in long dresses. Here’s a solid, handsome metal cat, dignified but humorous, that will hold your door open and stop draft slams.”

Incorporated in 1876 by Henry Sabin Chase, the Chase Brass and Copper Company began manufacturing industrial items such as brass rods. By the 1930s, the company had branched into creating attractive Art Deco “specialty” items for the home such as decorative boxes, barware, magazine racks and tableware. The pieces were created by top designers of the day such as Rockwell Kent, Russel Wright, and Walter VonNessen who designed this Cat Door Stop. Although production of their specialty items lasted only 12 years, Chase issued over 500 items, and 500 additional lamps and lighting fixtures. Today, these items are highly sought after collectables.

Vintage Folk Art Cat Doorstop - $10

What a cute little black cat!

Adorable bowtie and solid doorstop attached. I just realized there's a mark on his side...I bet he had a tail at one time. He's super cute though, and as soon as I saw him, I scooped him up!

Measures 6" tall x 3" wide x 5" deep
