This detailed sailboat door stop is sure to please someone who enjoys being out on the water -- a graceful, slender craft, turning to ride the waves just as the wind fills its sails. It's a sweet reminder of beautiful days and warm weather during dreary cold months, and the BEST kind of collectible -- you can USE it!
At just under 8 inches tall and weighing approximately 3 pounds, it is the perfect size to hold a door anywhere in the house. With fine casting and much detail it would also be a fine "desk art" figurine simply for enjoyment on a shelf. The base is approximately 2 inches by 6 inches, and is plain metal with no felt attached (you could add felt without harming it). It is in superb condition with no cracks, chips, breaks or metal damage.
We at first thought this was bronze because of its rich, allover, uniformly deep red-brown color, but it is actually cast iron (a magnet sticks readily) with a bronze (or brass) wash overlay. If you tilt it in bright light, bright golden areas appear, mostly worn away because of age. Some green verdigris shows in corners and crevices, but that's expected and adds character.
Sail boat door stops are difficult to find, and this one would be a lovely gift for a sailing enthusiast or just to keep!
