A rare cast iron doorstop featuring a fluffy pet dog sitting in an ornate kennel. There is a registered design number on the back which dates it to around 1865. This would account for its overall Neo-Gothic styling, no doubt influenced by the designs of Augustus Pugin and Charles Barry being applied to the rebuilding of the Palace of Westminster (1840–1870) in the Gothic Revival taste.
This domestic item wouldn't have looked out of place in any Victorian home of the time, particularly if it were a big old rambling Rectory!
