Acorn Doorknocker: Who's that tap-tap-tapping at your door? This acorn knocker cheerily announces visitors, while adding a woodland touch to your entry. Solid brass with verdigris finish; 6" high x 4" wide.
One of two 18th-century Green Man door knockers at Blenheim Palace, Green Man Trail, Oxfordshire. (http://greenmantrail.com) Thanks to Tim Healey for sharing this lovely photo on Flickr, and to Janet Mooney for helping me to discover it. -- Eve.
