Georgian Antique Lion Mask Door Knocker
What a beauty. In shocking condition when we found him he has been returned to his former glory. One of the securing studs was badly corroded and missing it's nut so we re-cut the thread to a slightly smaller diameter and made a new nut to suit. Once cleaned up his expression of calm serenity returned. The striking button is a later reproduction but its almost identical to the original one that came with an even earlier lion mask door knocker an image of which appears either side of our banner. For full details of the restoration process for this knocker see our blog. Ready to scare the children and wake the dead for another 100 years
