Iron Stop - Elephant
Doorstops or Door Porters are simply heavy objects used to hold a door open. By the late 1700's, many homes utilized round decorative examples made of sand-cast brass, or other types of metal with flat, hollow backs. Decorative door stops were not used in American Homes until after the Civil War. Decorative iron doorstops came into their own in the United States in the 1920's and remained popular through the early 1940's when heavy metal rationing began during World War II. They are very collectible and cover a range of subjects.
