    Description

    Franklin Pierce: Rare Massive Cast Iron Doorstop. As most sophisticated collectors know, Pierce is one of the toughest presidents for whom to find items other than a couple of varieties of common brass tokens. We have never seen another example of this cast iron portrait. Clearly recognizable as Pierce, it also bears his name in raised letters on the front of the base (casting flaw on the " IE". Although rather crudely made, it exudes "period flavor", and is in excellent condition. Height 6.875". From the U. I. "Chick" and Cecilia Harris Collection.
