From country French to shabby chic this colorful door stop will be the perfect addition. This cast iron flower basket is filled with a delightful array of hand painted tulips, roses, daisies, forget-me-knots and a host of small colorful buds and rich multi-toned leaves. This piece weighs 3 lbs. 9.2 ounces and measures approximately 8 ¼ inches in height by 5 ¼ inches in width, and 1 5/8 inches in thickness at the base. The colors are a nice mix of rich pinks, corals, two tone lavender and violet and multi-tone blues. The foliage is a perfect compliment of olive and forest green, all the colors you would expect to see in a country garden. The wicker basket weave and twined handle is in mixed neutrals with the first tiered bottom in a burnished deep gold, these tones become a perfect vehicle for this floral presentation.
This door stop does possess a recessed foundry mark ‘#3’ which is found on the backside lower right. This doorstop is in very nice overall condition. There are however some paint chips and rubbing found but certainly doesn’t detract from the charm of this wonderful collectible item. The patina on this doorstop is lovely with each flower delicately hand-painted in the richest of spring colors. There’s age appropriate wear found on the top of basket handle which would be expected from a piece dating circa early 1900's.
I guarantee this piece will brighten up the darkest corner and put a smile on your face.
