Sand-Cast George Washington Iron Door Stop. Rare late 18th or early 19th century hand sand-cast door stop of General George Washington in full-length military uniform, with epaulets showing his rank. An impressive 8¾ inhes high and a full 5 inches in width at the base. Weight is 5 pounds. Lovely black/brown patina on the obverse with ancient rust spotting on the reverse and base. Obtained by an Americana collector from an old farm house estate in the Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania area. Washington and his troops spent a short period of time in this part of Pennsylvania, passing up through to Valley Forge, and was well remembered and revered by the local inhabitants. This exceedingly rare Washington piece is sure to elicit strong bids from serious Revolutionary War collectors.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
