19th C 'Mr Punch' doorstop porter

An original 'Mr Punch' cast iron doorstop. This design has been reproduced many times over the years since it was first introduced, but early examples stand out a mile from the rest! The crispness of this one is superb, and therefore has lots of surfact detail. It also has an early paint finish, which has worn in the 'right' places afer years of use.

To the reverse it is stamped 'J & J Siddons'. Siddons were established as iron founders in 1818 in West Bromwich. In 1846 a partnership was formed by Jesse and Joseph (J & J Siddons). They were so successful that they had to purchase an additional nine acre site for their factories in 1876.

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.
