Brass Door Knocker, "Hold in the Wall" Brass Knocker, Vintage Knocker, Outlaw Gang Hideout, Butch Cassidy, Sundance Kid, Wild West, Northern Wyoming
I love door knockers and have one up on almost every door in my house. These miniatures were made to be placed on interior doors and they add to the decor. Some of mine follow particular themes, i.e., mermaid on one bathroom door, etc. This door knocker is unusual and, hard to find, somewhat rare. A great deal of history goes along with Hole in the Wall, located in canyon country in northern Wyoming. Used in the 19th century, by outlaws. to high away from the law. Many names that we know of today often spent time there. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid knew it well. A big part of the American Wild West. Our old western movies will show this area and speak to it with the outlaws galloping, full tilt, to get away from the sheriff and the posse. I had fun reviewing some of the history that this piece speaks to and recalling old western movies I have seen.
I'm hoping that someone will want this to complete a western theme - or a collector might want to add to a collection. It's also just a fun piece to have.
Condition: Excellent antique condition - See Photos for further description and note design. This is as purchased. I've had it for many years and found it with several others stored in a cabinet. I do not clean the old brass - prefer this look - not all agree and it will clean to bright and shiny if you wish. There are highlights with the bright brass showing through. Lovely old patina.
Measures: Height is approximately 3 3/4 inches and width 2 inches - - - opening approximately 1 inch
