    Description

    Jackson Wagon: A Cast Iron Doorstop in the Shape of a Frog. At one time this item and its companion piece advertising the "Webster Wagon" were thought to have been political items. However, more recent scholarship has determined that they were in fact mid-19th century advertising items for two different models of wagons. Nonetheless it seems apparent that they were named after the two prominent statesmen, therefore giving these items a legitimate claim to be collected by political and advertising hobbyists alike. A similar item would be the "Roosevelt" model of Marmon automobile, named after TR. Many Teddy Roosevelt collectors have included promotional materials for this automobile in their collections. Length 5", height 2.75". Repainted green, although a different shade from the original finish.
