Antique Pelican Door Knocker.

Very unusual and rare brass pelican door knocker. There is a legend that says the mother pelican would pierce her chest with her beak to be able to feed her blood to her  young  to prevent starvation. Early Christians adapted the pelican to symbolize Christ.

The first five images show the aged finish and the last five the polished.

Circa 1900.
