Iron Door Stopper

iron door stopWe got a stopper for our door recently, the kind made out of iron.

It is a vintage, decorative door stopper with a simple design. I think it’s ugly.

This fixture can also be used as a paper weight.

I understand that these types of door stops date way back to the Victorian Era (1837 – 1901). The Victorians were known to be the  first set of people who used sculptural elements to prop an open a door.

Anyway, despite its small size and relatively light weight, this iron door stopper has kept our door from slamming  . . . even on the windiest of days. Iron Door Stop
