i first saw hand shaped door knockers like these in tangier many years ago. there they were said to represent the hand of fatima. on our recent trip to mexico i encountered them again. apparently they were popular in victorian times. i got so spellbound by them that i wanted to have one, even though i don't have a door! (I mean- we rent) i found two on ebay that had a similar weathered patina. will post photos.
