Original antique early hand wrought shutter dogs or turn buckles from the Colonial Period - into early 1800's. This type of unusual off-set hold-back arm is documented in Sonn's Early Ameriican Wrought Iron as found from Virginia to Connecticut. A substantial hold-back with curls at the top and plain rounded graduating counterweights. The dogs or stays measure from about 4" to 5 1/4" high x about 3/4 to 1" across the flat top x about 1/2" diameter at base of the rounded counterweights. These dogs were made to mount on frame houses to hold the shutters back against the exterior wall when open. The square mounts measure approximately 2" x 1 1/2" and the arms extend the dogs about 2" - measurements vary because of the hand made variables. All in one lot from salvaged from one location. Very old and being sold as found showing their age and years of use but still functional.
