Wedgie Freddie Mercury Door Stopper
Meet The Purple One: He’s had more names than doors he‘s wedged open, but The Purple One can certainly hit the high notes. Known in showbiz circles as “The Doorstop”, “The Wedgie Formally Known as Doorstop” & “Doorstop Symbol”, it looks like he has finally settled on a name, and thankfully, the profession of door-stopping. Each Wedgie is hand-painted and handcrafted out of quality Alstonia wood. The paint used is a durable matte paint and is incredibly scratch resistant - these Wedgies are made to last. Please note: The hand painted nature of these pieces means that some slight variation in colour, design and form is to be expected. Size: (L) 21.5cm x (W) 4cm x (H) 3.5cm

Wedgie is proud to be part of an incentive scheme based in Sri Lanka aimed at the empowerment of men and women based in rural areas of the country. Unpainted door stops are delivered directly to employeesʼ houses, along with paints, brushes and tools.
