Code 915-43 18th Century Iron Door Knocker from France
This hand wrought iron door knocker with a pierced scrolling back plate is from the Period of Louis XVI (1774-1792). The top is in the shape of a bell and the sides are c-scrolls. The back place is original to the door knocker and can be turned in either direction. However, because of it's delicate iron scrolls, there is a minor loss and it probably looks better as shown in main photo. Another option is to not use backplate, cut scrolls to match, or simply leave as is.
Elegant and easy to mount on any door, this period Louis XVI door knocker will enhance any entryway.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition; minor rusting to back and one missing motif to top of back plate where hinge is.
