This is a very OLD, most likely Victorian hand doorknocker. It is in as found condition. Notice the old hammered nail that goes through the piece, which will give you an indication of just how old this piece is. It is missing a quite a bit of the finish on it. The hand has a bracelet & a ring on. Someone put a new nail in the back to screw into your door, so it is priced according to the new nail put on & the finish wear. When you screw it into your door, the new nail will never show, but just want to make you aware of it. So, a true OLD hand doorknocker, with a new nail for screwing into your door. I think it is a fabulous piece. This was acquired at an auction, where they always have the most wonderful items! It measures about 5 inches in length & is quite heavy for its size.
