Styling with Hardware: The Pilgrim Knocker
The scallop is a sign used along the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage walk that has been trekked by thousands of travellers over the centuries. Pilgrims would identify themselves with a scallop shell attached on their person, and follow the way by looking for the scallop sign affixed or painted on walls & doorways. This classic shape has been cast from a scallop shell I had amongst my library of objects and all its beautiful detailing shines in aged brass.
Knocker | Fasten the Pilgrim Knocker to your front door so that friends & guests may feel welcome stepping up to your doorstep.
Paperweight | With its weight and gorgeous detailing, keep it in sight resting on a stash of papers and loose ephemera. This is definitely one piece that should be on show!
Napkin holder | Work the scallop into a seafaring themed tablescape as a practical centre piece with a small pile of napkins held between the backplate and shell.
