Everyday Matters Drawing Challenge 21

EDM challenge 21Challenge prompt # 21 is “Draw something old, antique or vintage.”
This French antique decorative door knocker that is cast in the shape of ladies hand fits the topic so I decided to draw it.

It is cast iron and made in the early 19th century. I first saw door knockers like this in Paris but apparently they can be found all over Europe. This one is currently waiting for a striker plate to be found as eventually we will mount it on our front door. In the meanwhile it is paper weight!
