Image Description: The age of the doorbell is well upon us, and that age has long ago relegated door knockers to the realm of antiques, but that hasn’t stopped more than a few of us from adorning our doors with these handy devices. This door knocker, in particular, looks to be of a heavy, solid build, likely made of iron, or perhaps burnished steel. The mount of the knocker offers up a leafy motif, while the knocking ring itself has been corrugated in order to provide a strong grip for visitors. To the left, we can see that the window and lower door have been enhanced with similar treatments, making for an all-around beautiful effect.
