Dimensions (inches): 10" tall x 8" wide x 3" deep
Description:
MASTERPIECE QUALITY SQUIRREL DOORSTOP, ONE OF TWO KNOWN, 1860-70:

With particularly wonderful form and unusual girth, this impressive squirrel doorstop is one of the best of the known forms that exist. One of two known, it was produced in the Civil War era and is thus earlier than the mass production examples seen in the 1890-1920's period. Truly full-bodied, the mold is two-part. The bushy tail is perhaps the most wonderful feature. The eyes are purple glass, the surface is excellent, and there are no apologies.
