Door knocker plate with head of a bearded man

LS (2000) 91

Date : XVIIth century | Medium : openwork and engraved iron


It is intriguing to imagine the ring once fitted to this humanistic knocker plate: traces of the original ring are still perceptible on the two wings of the object. This ring was probably flat, judging by the hole in the mouth where the striking stud was placed.
