Please take a look at my other listings. ★★★★ This Door Knocker is in the form Two Romanesque Sea Creatures and a Pair of Shells. It's an ideal door knocker for a home near the sea or for an individual in love with the ocean. On this door knocker the two creatures' tails are coiled around the top clam shell as they swing in tandem with a conch in their mouths. The exaggerated features of these serpents are reminiscent of Roman mosaics and architecture. The conch strikes against a second clam shell at the bottom. Clam shells like the ones on this door knocker were often inspired by the Shell of St. James. This door knocker came from France and was cast in bronze. I don't believe it is too old, probably from the 1960s, but it is well made and unique. The door knocker is not new. It shows patina from age and use. Overall condition is excellent. Go ahead... buy it, install it & make your neighbors jealous! ★ Measurements: 7" Tall by 4" Wide by 1-5/8" Deep★ca.1960★ ★★★★ 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.
