Here's a doorstop I've had for a while. It's a cast iron Dalmatian that was manufactured by Virginia Metalcrafters of Waynesboro, VA. It's 12" tall and weighs 9.8lbs. Pic #3 shows the Virginia Metalcrafters hallmark as well as the number 18-10 at the bottom of this Dalmatian. It's still in really nice condition and has only experienced minimal paint loss. This one is still fairly plentiful and easy to find, so I'm not truly sure what time period this one was made. My educated guess would be the 1950's. I have a couple of andirons that are nearly identical, but made by a different manufacturer than Virginia Metalcrafters.
Thanks very much for stopping in for a look at my Dalmatian doorstop!!
