About

English mid-19th century cast brass dolphin doorstop on original cast iron plinth. This heavy quality well detailed dolphin has his tail curled around in a circle so he is easy to pick up and move and is a wonderful doorstop. If one is searching for a way to draw a nautical theme into a room, this dolphin definitely elicits scenes of the sea to one's imagination, circa 1850.
