Weighing 1.4 pounds, this gold colored Aztec doorknocker is not your ordinary welcoming committee but a dramatic nod to a once great Mexican civilization.
The no-nonsense warrior wears a feathered headdress of three eagles, two on the top and one projecting outward at the center. Secured by two welded screws, at the ears, is a loosely hinged zig-zagged knocking plate, decorated with a face at the base.
We are not sure which non-magnetic metal (excluding the hinges) forms the doorknocker.
The backside, stained in black, bears three metal mounting screw holes. The mounting screws are not included. Not included also is the knob that the knocking plate taps against; it did not accompany the doorknocker.
In the center are three raised metal words. Two maker marks are illegible but the center word reads clearly as "Mexico".
Origin: Mexico; pre-owned
Dimensions: 8 1/2"H x 5 3/4"W x 1 3/4"D
Condition: Very Good/ Good. This striking doorknocker requires new mounting screws and a knocking plate knob. There is some light scuff marks to the warrior nose and cheek area. The back has some red paint from prior ownership.
