These hand-and-ball iron doorknockers are ubiquitous in France. They’re common in Spain, too where the design is more lifelike. This rusty beauty was on a riverside house in Saint Savinien. The property had seen better days but was still lived in. I wonder if the owner shares my belief that decay can often be more beautiful than polished, painted perfection?
