Antique Cast Iron Heavy Doorstop Ship with Sails or Galleon Marked No 205
Description: A beautiful antique cast iron doorstop cast in the form of a sail ship or galleon with sails wide open and red flags fluttering in the wind. The ship is painted in an off-white color and has red flags, red portholes, a red cross on one of the sails, a green crescent on another and a green colored spot in the front. The doorstop has two feet on which it stands and a central stop which is what would stop the door in its place. The back also has two short prongs at mid height, which extend outwards and are probably to ensure the doorstop does not touch the door. Very nice antique doorstop, marked No 205 on the back, which is large and heavy. This is a nice size piece and weighs over 5 pounds. Please view photos as they are part and parcel of the description.
