Here we have, a nice, Victorian door stop. It is of a lady, with a nude top, covering up with her hands. The body is a bisque half doll, which is attached to a metal base, and the dress and handle are leather. The handle is covered with leather, and has hand stitching as you can see, and the dress is made of strips of leather, formed over the metal form, and a leather cover over the bottom. There is some flaking on the doll where it was colored, on the arms, and back, and a little on the head. Didn't clean this, for fear of doing damage to the bisque coloring, and the leather. This is as I got it. Very good condition, considering the age. The leather is dry and has some cracking on the dress. It measures 18 3/4" high at the handle, and is 12" wide at the handle, and the lady figure is 12" high at the top of the head, 7 1/2" x 5" wide, and the base is 9" x 5". Great, old door stop to add to a collection! Not often seen!!!
