Two Charming Early 20th Century Painted Cast Iron Door Stop Dogs

$850Asking Priceper set


A most fetching sight. The dogs compliment each other well and show a nice overall wear to the color surfaces. Measurements refer to the largest dog. Decorative doorstops weren’t widely used in American homes until after the Civil War, and most post-Civil War doorstops were small and lightweight. Decorative iron doorstops came into their own in the United States in the 1920s, and they remained very popular through the early 1940s when heavy metal rationing began during World War II. They were purchased very inexpensively, sometimes with coordinating door knockers or bookends, in gift shops and even through mail order catalogs.
