This iconic brass French antique door knocker is very old and very rare. I have had a couple of them before and am so happy to have found another. I love these hand and ball door knockers. They are fabulous on your front door and always are noticed.
Often the French did not have doorbells so they always used a door knocker. Today they are probably more decorative but certainly do the job.
It is very heavy and sturdy.
This one has a lovely round piece which you would attach to your door where the hand actually hits it to create the knock.
It measures 4 1/2 inches long by 2 1/4 at the back.
