bullet  Famous Bat Door Knocker

back one page
go to the beginning of category: Door Knockers
In our experience the bat style door knocker of this design is the most widely faked or reproduced of al the knockers we come across. Casting quality goes from very fine, for an example by Kenrick and sons (10/10) to truly awful by some anonymous far east vendor of cast rubbish to the UK market (0/10). We would asses the quality of this example as fair to good (7/10). In full working order with new spring and spindle and long replacement fixing studs. Comes complete with ongoing care instructions. See images for more details.
