This is an amazing and masterful piece of a cast-iron doorstop! Made in the late 1940s, this vintage doorstop is quite unique as it features a bull ready to charge. The figure of the bull comes complete with a u-shaped horn structure, bulging circular eyes, and a traditional nose ring. Because the cast iron has been hammered throughout during the fabrication process, the cast iron has a heavily textured quality from the top of the bull’s head to the very base upon which it stands. Unfortunately, there is no maker’s mark to identify who crafted such an excellent piece.
This doorstop is in mint vintage condition. Four felt pads, now slightly worn, were placed on bottom of the metal stand so that the doorstop would not mar wooden or ceramic tile floors.
This hammered cast-iron bull doorstop is a rarity as well as a one-of-a-kind product. Though it has great functional use, the greater value of this bull doorstop lies in its value because there is none other like it. This would make for an ideal addition to any metal product collection!
