Rare Brass Lincoln Imp Door Porter, a quality brass door porters with semi circular bases and plinths with a detailed figure of the 'Lincoln Imp' sat upon the upright stem. C1910

The bases are infilled with lead, the brass polished, this door porter is in fantastic condition good and working order.

According to a 14th-century legend, two mischievous creatures called imps were sent by Satan to do evil work on Earth. After causing mayhem in Northern England, the two imps headed to Lincoln Cathedral, where they smashed tables and chairs and tripped up the Bishop. When an angel came out of a book of hymns and told them to stop, one of the imps was brave and started throwing rocks at the angel, but the other imp cowered under the broken tables and chairs. The angel turned the first imp to stone, giving the second imp a chance to escape. It is said that even on still days it is always windy around the cathedral, which is the second imp circling the building looking for his friend.
