Long Description:
Anker dørhammer ved privat bolig i den lille gade, Teglgade i Marstal.
Marstal har tidligere været en betydningsfuld søfartsby. De fleste mænd arbejde med søfart på den ene eller anden måde. Mange af dem var søfolk og sejlede ud i verden, mens kvinderne var hjemme og passe børn og hus.
At have et anker som dørhammer er derfor helt naturligt i en søfartsby.
Ankeret er dog kun på denne ene dør, og er sandsynligvis fremstillet hos den lokale kleinsmed.



Anchor door knocker at private residence in the small street, Teglgade in Marstal.
Marstal has previously been a significant maritime town. Most men work with shipping in one way or another. Many of them were sailors and sailed out into the world while the women were at home taking care of children and house.
Having an anchor as a door hammer is therefore completely natural in a maritime city.
However, the anchor is only on this one door, and is probably made at the local blacksmith.
Functional door?: yes
