The use of concrete blocks are commonly used for doorstops, however at the entry of some mid century modern villa lies a $3500 chunk of cement holding a door open. This concrete doorstop is shaped like an Alvar Aalto Savoy vase - because one was used to cast the shape which was then shattered to let out the mould.

An intriguing albeit wasteful use of an iconic and expensive vase.
