Now That's a Pair of Knockers

Sintra, Portugal

This door was seen inside the Quinta da Regaleia (the previous photo).
When my husband saw it the title was his first comment.
I had a good laugh and then he told me he stole the line from "Young Frankenstein."
Anyway, thought it was a good one to put up for Mother's Day!!!

For those wondering about the doorknobs, they don't twist like the usual ones. You turn them like the mechanism on the top of an ice cream maker. If you don't rotate them the same amount, you end up with an offset, as the picture shows.

As a fan of the movie "Young Frankenstein" I was going to say just that 8-)

Fine detail and clarity. Interesting how the doorknobs are in different positions. "V"
The line from Young Frankenstein spoken by Gene Wilder refers to Teri Garr. ;-)
