Lovely little old Door Knocker with a Castle on top of the back plate and ANN HATHAWAY'S COTTAGE as the knocker...also says....SHOTTERY - STRATFORD UPON AVON. Ann Hathaway was the wife of WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. The knocker is 5" long and a max of 2 1/2" in width. This is a genuine old knocker...most of these old brass souvenir door knockers were made in the early 1900's when they were a very popular tourist item locally in Britain. These small knockers were used mainly on internal bedroom and bathroom / toilet doors as at that time most doors were not fitted with locks.
