Oh my gosh so I found this at Goodwill, a thrift store, and I've seen similar metal doorstops that were very pricey and so I thought it might be from the same kind of genre as those others. So I've been searching online and I swear I've found this swan doortstop! It's for sale, in much worse condition, at an online antique store selling for $350 dollars! Lets just say I didn't pay $350 dollars! So my mom thinks it's a copy but I don't know...! What do you guys think? Can anyone tell me how I can verify if this thing is authentic or not? Here's the website where I found it for sale. Vintage Swan Here are some pictures of it from that website.
I just don't know! The one I have is definitely cast iron, it is the heaviest thing I've ever carried except for our own vintage cast iron pans....Help!!!
