Seller: 1n2antiques (236) 100%, Location: Dresden, Ohio, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 282240466738 Antique solid heavy brass door knob. It has 2 winged dog like gargoyle Chimera's maybe protecting the letter "D". I found something on Crystalinks- just put gargoyles and html after that and it will show this article- Returning to Paris and this time the SacrŽ-Coeur, here is a fine example of the wolf as gargoyle. Although wolves too were linked to greed they were respected as an animal that lived through cooperation with its peers Ð and they gave rise to the ancient metaphor Ôthe leader of the packÕ. They were also linked to priests whose responsibility it was to protect the people from the devil Ð so the wolf was the protector of the lamb of God, as it were. Gargoyles come in packs too Ð and this was because the architects needed to divide the flow of rainwater off the roof. A single gargoyle would not be much good in a ferocious storm. Their strange elongation is also deliberate as the extra length will ensure that the water cascades as far away from the wall as possible. Unsure what the "D" stands for- maybe Dracula...lol. Very rare and interesting piece of history. There are a couple of minor scratches that can be polished out on the back side. Hardly noticeable. There is only 1 handle- it measures 2"Wide x 1.5"Deep. Email any questions... ~Free Shipping~ Color: Brass, Material: Brass
