At both ends, raised dots can be seen.

had a Nameplate that was riveted onto it.
Actually, not the case, the Nameplate, Lettering and Rivets
are all part of the cast iron casting.
All their doorstops were identified by the same Nameplate
whose Lettering read:   SCULPTURED METAL STUDIOS
(in Typewritten Block Style)
