★★★★ I have a variety of door knockers to suit your home. Please take a look. ★★★★

This Antique Door Knocker is in the form of a Hand Clutching a Fruit - most likely a pomegranate. It is often referred to as the Hand of Fatima or, sometimes, the Hand of Mary. This style door knocker symbolizes good luck and good fortune and is believed to protect the home to which it is affixed. You'll note that this particular example is quite ornate, very weighty and has beautiful pitting and mild red rust you can only get from a hundred years of exposure to the elements. The wrist itself has a lacy cuff upon it and a ring can be found on one of the fingers. It is worth noting that a matching strike plate is included which is often lost. Plus, the door knocker is about one-to-two inches longer than most similar hand and ball door knockers. This door hardware is quite impressive. The craftsmanship is superb. You will definitely hear it when someone knocks on your door. Construction is solid cast iron and probably from Spain. The door knocker is not new. It is a salvaged item and has patina from age and use. Overall condition is excellent. Go ahead... buy it, install it & make your neighbors jealous!

★ Measurements: 6-1/2" Tall by 2-1/2" Wide by 3" Deep ★ c.1880★

★ And now, the sales pitch...

Why buy a salvaged door knocker? Salvaged door knockers are often constructed of much better materials and the craftsmanship is unparalleled. Not only have they proven that they will last through the years, but their value and collectibility through time has increased and will definitely increase further.

The obvious place for a door knocker is on your front door but they can be used in so many other areas. Bedrooms, bathrooms, dorm rooms, office spaces, workshops, garages, man caves etc... the possibilities are endless. Some door knockers are beautiful enough to simply hang on your wall for display.

Door knockers can also reflect your personality or the personality of your home. Is your home Victorian, Gothic, Art Nouveau, Art Deco or Mid Century Modern? Are you fond of particular breed of dog or other animal? Do you want your door knocker to say you're strong, intelligent, or maybe the class clown? There are knockers out there for you.
