Door Knocker, Gothic Quarter, Barcelona

Door Knocker, Gothic Quarter, Barcelona [enlarge]

An old door knocker nailed into a much modern door. There are many like these in the Gothic quarter. Most often, the knocker has just come out of the foundry but I think this one has been around for some time now. As to the link to the pictures I made during my holidays, here are some of them although I have not finished uploading all the stuff: Cuba, Year 50 AC

The old knocker looks pretty good, even though it's married to a much younger door.
Went to take a peek at the Cuba pics, can't wait to see more!

Thanks to you all. Happy to read all your kind words.
-L- I normally don't accept comments with links other than blogs. But I checked your work and it seemed fair enough to let it through. Thanks for your visit.

Lovely old knocker. However, the door to my eyes looks very old too!

- designslinger: thanks. I liked your Chicago reflections post.
- thanks arabesque
- thanks Leif
- Hey, how are you Janie. Good to hear from u again.
- LOL Jacob
- No idea Amy.
- Julie. Definitely, the door is old too but just the wood plank. There were no ornaments as it is common in doors carrying such door knockers.
