Embrace the harmony of the past and present, where practicality meets artistry, with this wharf timber door stop – or piece of table art. Add a touch of history to your home with piece of Wellington's maritime heritage lovingly restored for your enjoyment.

The timber, aged by the natural currents of Wellington Harbour was originally imported in to New Zealand more than a century ago. It formed part of the historic Eastbourne Wharf before that structure was restored about a decade ago.

The marks made through time and water erosion have been carefully preserved and enhanced with natural beeswax, allowing its rich character to shine through.

At the heart of this piece, a vintage railway iron, the pandrol clip, appears to effortlessly float above the timber. It's a subtle nod to the craftsmanship and the timelessness of this unique creation.

This Keep Me Post is medium sized and boasts a low center of gravity, making it perfect for keeping your doors wide open.

  • Material: Jarrah & railway iron
  • Dimensions: H 18 cm, W 20 cm, D 17 cm
  • Weight: 3.8 kg

The timber is Australian Jarrah, a very dense and durable wood that is part of the Eucalyptus family.

Jarrah was imported and used along with other Australian hardwoods in late nineteenth century New Zealand for commercial and industrial construction.

The history of the timber has been retained by leaving any existing bolt holes and surface marks, while exposing and polishing the beautiful end grain.

Both the Jarrah and the old iron have been cleaned, sanded, and hand finished by applying a coating of natural beeswax.

Each Keep Me Post has a felt pad on the base to protect any surface you choose to put it on.
