I spotted this door knocker on a side street, just steps from a route I walk practically every day. I would have missed this amazing little architectural detail entirely had I not had to retrieve my apartment key from a friend who graciously watered my plants while I was away. I have been wowed by several door knockers in Paris but this one takes the cake, don't you think?
The other side of the double door must be a clue to the original owner's identity but it's just a tantalizing pendant today.
