The Picture shown is taken fron the English
"CoalbrookDale Company Catalog"
Time period of this catalog is around the late 1800's
The only reason this doorstop is shown on this site is that
this doorstop is shown in both Bertoia & Smith's book on doorstops.
The desire to illustrate the old American Foundries is the main
purpose of this website
The English call their doorstops - "Door Porters".
