Big reward for stolen door

A $2000 reward is being offered for the return of a century-old heritage-listed door called Iris.

The distinctive leadlight door was stolen from Sheridan’s badge shop in Florence Street, West Perth, during renovations in August.

After four months of trawling Quokka and second-hand furniture sellers, Phil Sheridan has gone public with his appeal for the beloved door’s return.

The door is the centrepiece of a 2m by 3m panorama, and features a pond setting with a purple iris growing out. The window above—also stolen—features two colourful doves.

• This distinctive door was stolen right off the hinges during renovations. A $2000 reward is offered.

If anyone has the door, has seen the door, or even bought it in good faith, Mr Sheridan is begging them to call him on 1234 567 789 or SMS a photo of the door. He says there’ll be no questions asked nor judgements made.

Mr Sheridan says the door’s already been through a lot: a hooligan once stuffed a nearby letterbox with explosives and the resulting blast hurled a brick into the frame above one of the door’s windows. Mr Sheridan decided not to repair the impact mark: the door had earned its war wound and is now part of its story.
