    Hello everyone!!

    Back to the doorstops. You've seen my reproduction of the waddle of penguins doorstop. This is one of the originals from the 1930's or 1940's. As you can see, this one is once piece design, whereas the reproduction has each of the penguins bolted to the base. Also, the reproductions are 12" tall and 11" long. This one only measures about 7 3/4" tall and 9 3/4" long.

    There are no markings, so, I'm unsure of the manufacturer of this one. This version is becoming more and more difficult to find. This one is in wonderful condition and, evidently, has never seen the outdoors and was probably only used during the winter or holiday season.

    Thank you all for stopping in for a look!!

    Scott

      I've never seen this in real life. Actually, I do not run across too many doorstops.

      vintagelamp,
      I come across quite a few doorstops, but many I see are reproductions. This particular one is the first I've seen in many years.
