French Ornate Brass Large Lion's Head Door Knocker with Striker Plate
Beautiful Ornate Brass French Antique Large Lion's Head Door Knocker with Striker Plate and hardware. The heavy ring is gripped to his mouth. At GSaleHunter, we often polish our found brass, however in this case the Patina adds French character and charm. Picked from a Brocante in the Champagne region during a recent visit.
Measures 6 5/8" L overall, the head is 4 1/4" W and the Striker is 2" Diameter. Great condition with nice patina, this is a heavy duty piece that will last for many years to come.
Door Knockers are a tradition in Europe dating back to ancient Greece. The Lion head is a staple in Georgian architecture and symbolizes power and strength, courage and fortitude.
