Additional Notes & Condition Report
Each appears to be in generally good condition; the shorter example has an open or "hollow" fox head base; the taller example has a thin sheet brass/metal backplate soldered to the back of its fox head cavity so that is is closed off and the cavity is filled with a substance to give the stand greater weight; the spiral standard and its ring-shaped carry handle rise straight, however, the when the doorstop is placed against a wall or other flat surface it is apparent that the ring handle is slightly twisted askew (angled) and that it does not align itself properly against the back wall; it does not appear that this issue can be easily remedied; the height of the shorter example is 15 1/2 inches
