New Cast Iron Doorstop, Toy, Nodder
This new cast iron alligator and black child is 6" long, 3 1/2" high; the child's head moves. This piece has been offered as a toy, a paperweight and wedge-style door stop. It arrives new with a "distressed" finish including paint chips, scratches, simulated stains, etc.
Joint seams in old cast iron are tight with virtually no gaps and rarely have grinding marks. The gap and grinding marks on the bottom of this piece are shown in Fig. 2.
