This pieces gives you strength, power & royalty feelings, it is a classic!!
Fantastic patina

The hollow shaped back & surface of the back are indicative of early doorstops consistent with the 1775-1825 period
I love the entire look of this piece, the lions mane is incredible, the overall patina & multi-color tones of the aged iron is superb!!
This could be used as a bookend
The small vertical rod on the backside I trimmed off about 1/4 inch to allow this to stand straight & stable
