Large Oak Door stop with Bronze Hare (Poppy)
These large doorstops are hand made from selected English Oak. The base is 2" thick for stability and the back is 1" thick. The Oak is cut to size then planed flat. The round handle is hand cut then sanded to the final shape. The back is screwed and dowelled to the base which ls both secure and pleasing to the eye. The overall height is between 12 -14" and the width is about 6".
Once the wood is finish sanded the decorative figurine is permanently fixed to the base. This figure is a cold cast bronze model of a Hare (Poppy) which has been signed by the artist Harriet Glen.
When ready the wood is treated with a good quality Teak Oil which both preserves the wood and enhances the grain.
These are very popular and customers have also bought these as large book ends or just as ornaments in their own right.
