19th century cast iron door stop / porter

An original 19th century cast iron door stop portraying Hercules and the serpent Ladon who protected the Golden Apples. A well-cast piece with plenty of detail, particularly the snake's head and scales. When we first acquired it, it was coated in a thick layer of gloss paint. This has now been removed to reveal the quality of the casting and then given a coat of black wax to seal the metal from the air.


  • H: 35cm (13.78in)
  • W: 17cm (6.69in)

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
