    O.k. - I took some new photos, thinking they might be of some help.

    The only "holes" on the piece are in the neck ruff, which would be useful for attaching it to something, and one through the snout, which would be good for holding a ring handle if affixed to a small box or chest. The holes in the eyes, ears and mouth are shallow and for design not function.

      Hi Beast

      As you say the nose holes look wrongly placed and a little small for a door knocker. However, the ears could have a 'crescent shaped' knocker held into its 'sockets' - the springloading of this holds it is place - like a hip-joint in the socket.

      Any wearing in the ears?

      Either way, a nice piece, I would lean towards Medieval/European.
