Item #2746 SOLD
Solid polished brass Chase Art Deco Cat Doorstop designed by Walter Von Nessen. Very important design with chrome and black paint circa 1932. Displayed in the Brooklyn Museum of Decorative Arts from the show “Machine Age in America!” One of my favorites from the series of Chase doorstop and also bookends designed during this prolific period of American Industrial Design.
