Dans le temps, on faisait de jolies choses.
Lisl: It is a little work of art, and still good after probably 300 years

Well...he is Green!

Slightly foliate isn't it Lisl. I wonder what age it comes from?
Lisl: It was on a 17th Century House, but I guess it is probably 18th Century
I like this old knocker, it is very original and texture of the door are superb
Lisl: Isn't it a fine survival, Marie
J'adore !!!! merci pour cette belle découverte
Lisl: I was exploring an old town, and found quite a few fine doorknockers like this, not all old

So I wonder how many times that has been used and what sort of people have passed through the doorway?
Lisl: You may not have passed through the doorway, but you have walked past this, Alan - it is in Frome

What a lovely find Lisl

This is lovely and I like the tinge of green on the unclean brass.
Lisl: It certainly adds something, Chad
It is certainly showing its age.
Lisl: It is, but still rather fine
It complements the wooden door perfectly, Lisl. A lovely thing indeed.
Lisl: Yes - they did go well together, Beverly
It is lovely and well patinaed
Lisl: The owners must be so pleased to have it in their care
get the Brasso
Lisl: Too precious!
Nice find!
Lisl: One of many in Frome, Tom
I love that green! Great find!
Lisl: It has made me more aware again of old doorknockers - I have a small collection (photographic), and then I forget to look
