Victorian Cornish Marble Door Stop

Victorian Cornish Marble Door Stop
Circa 1860
A Victorian Cornish serpentine marble door stop with brass ring handle.
The popularity of Cornish serpentine as a building material took off after the Great Exhibition of 1851, in which Prince Albert ordered several pieces and souvenirs to be displayed. The Lizard Serpentine Company established a factory at Poltesco in 1855, producing serpentine stonework until 1870. Due to rising costs and falling demand the factory shifted focus to working with marble until finally closing in 1893, the remains of which can still be seen at Carleon Cove.
