Antique Bronze Doorknocker in Shape of Hand with Ball

This is one of a collection we purchased from a European dealer doing a show here in Florida. It is in excellent, useable condition! What a great addition to your home. It can be used on an interior or exterior door. Just imagine it on your guest bathroom door or even your front door!

It weighs 1 pound 7.5 oz and can easily work as a heavy duty paperweight!

The fully extended length is 6 3/4". The hand-to-wrist part that would be seen hanging measures 5" x 1 1/2" at the widest point. It is 1 3/4" deep where the hand holds the ball. The length of the screw is 1 1/8".

Someone must have polished this one during the last 100 years, but it still has a great patina that started to develop after that polishing. This doorknocker is at least 100 years old. Sculpted items in the shape of hands were extremely popular throughout the Victorian era.
