‘Lady Hand’ Cast Iron Door Knocker


An intriguing cast iron ‘Hand of Fatima’ door knocker, complete with frilled cuff and finger ring. Coming from the Moorish tradition, whose influences reached as far north as southern France, the hand and the number five figure extensively as emblems of good luck, with occupants of a house with a door knocker in this shape thought to be protected against evil. Springing from an ornate rectangular base plate, and worn smooth through age and usage, this beautiful example is in excellent condition and is ready to stand guard over the home of many future generations to come.
