Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Yellow Ware Window Stop in the Form of an Indian Wearing a Headdress.
This window stop was used around 1810-1830 to hold windows open. The flat backside has a little molded tread on it where the window rested. Few have survived the slamming down of the window and the falling on the floor or out the window when the window was raised.
This beauty has a Confident and Beguiling Face with Headdress and Beard. It rests on a tapered base. Measures 5 1/2" tall, 3" wide and 3" deep.
A similiar piece is found in Lisa McAllister, Collector's Guide to Yellow Ware Book 2, p. 17.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind. Does not look like it was ever used.
I have never seen this form of window stop before now.
