Genuine Edwardian Egyptian Queen or Greek Goddess Brass Door Knocker. I can't quite decide who she is, all I know is that she seems to give an aura of peace and calm, in addition to which she has a great patina only achieved with age. Complete with original brass striking plate and new fixing studs. Slim in width and ideal for glazed doors with a narrow centre stile.
The original, iron-studded oak door lies at the end of a short passageway with murder holes in the ceiling above. Deal Castle was finished in 1540 as part of Henry VIII's scheme to defend the south coast against invasion. This site is now in the care of English Heritage (2010).
