These are my favorite kind of pictures, VP. Whenever I travel, I take pictures of doorknockers, door panels, mail slots, and other small-scale architectural decorations. Nice!

Wood: makes a welcome change from stone. Beautiful. I wonder if the scallops mean what I think they mean.

Ciao! Beautiful photos! I would have enjoyed being able to watch the artisans/craftsmen creating these! Wood is such a warm medium, so full of life, more so than metal or stone.

Very interesting learning about de Larderel and the clean steam.

Saluti!

Door details are my favorite subjects in Paris, among many other things! Yours are just wonderful . Thanks for sharing all of them as I'm sure it was too hard to choose just one!
