The Cows jump over the Moon, Vintage Restoration

I wish I knew more about these! From what I can gather these are Vintage Cast Iron Door stops, possibly from the 1930s, though there are no markings or stamps, possibly from the USA as I've seen a few being sold from there! 

 

They have been re-hand painted them to give a new lease of life and would be stunning in a nursery etc as ornaments/bookends or as doorstops as intended. 

 

"A little history of cast iron doorstops . The height of doorstop popularity in the United States was the 1920's and early 1930's. Doorstops were carried in many gift shops and event the Sears Roebuck Catalogue offered a few, including a Boston Terrier, French Bulldog and German Shepherd.Being relatively inexpensive, doorstops brought many decorating opportunities to the housewife of the 20s and 30s. She could purchase coordinated sets of cast iron accessories that would include doorstops as well as bookends (usually measuring only 6" in height), door knockers, shade pulls, etc.Doorstops were functional and decorative at the same time"
