Description
This is an antique Mr. Punch doorstop. An English, cast iron figurative door keeper, dating to the Victorian period, circa 1880. Originating in the commedia dell'arte of 16th century Italy, Punchinello came to be known as Mr. Punch, his first recorded appearance occurring in May 1662. Strikingly cast, with a wonderful character and endearing detail. Displays a desirable aged patina, a minor loss to lower edge under inspection. Quality cast iron replete with fine form, and presenting a consistent graphite finish. Mr. Punch sits atop a pile of books, a faithful dog by his side Slyly, the figure is shown 'cocking a snook' with his left hand against his nose. Dressed in fine robes, his right hand holding a feathered quill and piece of paper. Late Victorian 'diamond' registered design mark imprint visible to paper. This is a fascinating antique Mr. Punch doorstop, graced with bountiful character and detail. Of appealing weight and quality appearance. Delivered polished and ready to serve.
