Ancient Old Door Knocker, duck egg blue survivor
A very old iron door knocker. What is it about the colour blue that encourages people to paint their door furniture in that colour? This knocker was heavily encrusted with old paint when it arrived. After dismantling it was put in the stripping tank, halfway through the process the knocker was inspected and found to be covered in several layers of duck egg blue gloss paint! Back into the tank it went. Duck egg blue no less. Anyway, thatâs all gone and the spindle has been replaced and now the knocker is ready for another 100 years service In good condition with plenty of character. Supplied with two replacement fixing bolts
