Old Heavy Cast Iron Doorstop Fisherman or Old Salt in Yellow Jacket & Black Hat
Date: Early to mid 1900s.
Origin: Purchased in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA.
Size: Measures ~6 3/8" in height and the base measures ~2 3/4"by and ~2 1/4". The doorstop weighs over 3 pounds and 4 ounces.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is definitely a nice and relatively scarce doorstop. It weighs over 3 pounds and although it would seem that it has been repainted sometime in the past it retains of the paint. A nice piece with beautiful and very interesting details. Would display nicely in your collection.
Condition: This doorstop is in very good condition with no breaks or repairs. The piece appears to have been re-painted sometime in the past and still retains its paint with relatively minimal loses. It does have some minor rust signs on the top and bottom of the base. It could probably use a good cleaning but we will leave that up to the new owner. Because of the issues listed here we are selling the piece AS IS at a fraction of its true value. Please see photos for additional condition information.
