I do not usually frequent antique shops, but I would love to own one of these beautiful antiques someday. Perhaps, not to put on my front door, but to put in a shadowbox frame to admire in my home. Someday, I want one of these beautiful knockers for myself.

Whenever we travel to Europe, I am always on the prowl, looking for door knockers. Most are found on old doors in very old, small villages. I stand there, lightly touching the knocker and imagine how many people in the hundreds of years past have rapped on the door. Perhaps they came for a visit and a cup of coffee. Perhaps they came to bring good news to the family. And, perhaps, sad news that one can only imagine.
