Door Stops

We can thank the Victorians and their love of all things ornamental for raising the humble doorstop to decorative heights. Prior to the 19th century, most doors were unceremoniously propped open with the nearest rock, a stray brick, or a wedge of wood. By the mid-19th century, doorstop makers cast iron into fanciful forms, painted festively to brighten up the room.
