Doors and windows

This collection of fixing and furniture for doors and windows is starting to look really lovely as a group of thumbnails. Hand-shape door knockers and lion door knobs. I particularly like the little window shutter devices, most of which I found around the Spitalfields area. Shown below are some that depict little people and another one that, to me, looks like a parrot!

Thanks polar.
Those window closures (and most of the door furniture shown here) are Hugenot from the streets around Spitalfields. I found lots of similar ones in Western France a while back... see here: http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=28139729@N06&q=france%20window%20shutter
