It is obviously an early one in that there are no rubber bumpers on the back. Also no Judd shop mark.
Overall this is in great condition! The figure is a butler. More specifically the major-domo in charge of the service staff.
From his clothes I would guess that he is a character from the time of the colonies. The title major-domo refers to the individual who is in charge of the service staff. It is numbered 1249 on the backside.
The doorstop is 8 1/2 inches tall 5 1/8 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches deep. Cast iron with a painted finish. Because these were working pieces of artwork in the days before air conditioning the painted finish has taken some knocks. But as doorstops go this is in great condition.The paint is all original. Also, there is no paint on the face. My guess is is that sometime an artist transformed him into a member of the continental army!
