John and Nancy Smith are the leading recognized authorities on doorstops and figural cast iron, and have been avid collectors for over forty years. As highly regarded dealers and authors, they have appeared at major antique shows since 1971.

Specializing in Cast Iron, Folk Art, Country Americana, Decoys, and Carvings, their personal collection of figural cast iron includes doorstops, doorknockers, banks, bookends, lawn sprinklers, hitching posts, etc. The Smith's focus and priority have always been on graphics, form, color, and condition with original paint.

Their recently published book, "The Doorstop Book", is by far, the most informative and comprehensive book written to date on doorstops and features over 1000 doorstops in full color. "The Doorstop Book" includes the history of door stops, doorstop foundries, copies of original door stop catalogs w/doorstop price lists, door stop reproductions, and the care and cleaning of doorstops. They are currently hard at work completing their second Doorstop Book.
