A.M. GREENBLATT STUDIO
17 RICHMOND STREET, BOSTON, MA
1924 - 1948-9

Morris Greenblatt was opened a small casting foundry in 1902 called "the Nubian Art Company"
and latter in 1909 another castings foundry, "the Boston Plastic Art Company".
In 1924, Morris Greenblatt opened " A.M.Greenblatt Studio " until 1948-9.
Two Huge Rose Basket Doorstops were made in 1925, nearly identical in design.
One by Greenblatt Studios of Boston, MA, and one by LACS, both highly respected foundries
competing with Hubley of Lancaster, PA at the time.
This large cast iron "Basket of Roses" was one of the first doorstops to be produced
by the AM Greenblatt Studio and is marked on the back,
"#28 Copyright 1925 by A.M. Greenblatt Studios".
These early doorstop castings were hand-painted at the Greenblatt Studios by highly respected craftsmen,
and were sold in the finer shops.
These castings were painted with several layers of thick enamel paint in different colors,
adding even more dimension and depth to the perception of the already detailed mold.
Greenblatt Studios made some of the most durable and well-made doorstops at the time,
and they command some of the highest prices among antique doorstops today.
