Okay, I know nothing about old doorstops except that I like them! Some of these may actually be new and made to look old, but I like them! No idea of the value (if any), but I like them! In case you did not get the message, I like old (or made to look old) doorstops. I once saw in a magazine a mantel that was covered in these and have liked the idea since. If you see me at Warrenton and have some old doorstops...you know I am a sucker!
