Painted Cast Iron St. Bernard Door Stop. Original paint. Height 7 inches (17.5 cm). Circa 1870.
With its original paint, this Victorian Cast Iron St. Bernard Door Stop or Fireside Ornament dates from circa 1870.
As the base is quite narrow the St. Bernard stands better resting against a door or wall.
There is some wear to the paint but this just adds to the charm.
