Antique Brass Door Knocker, elegant shape
A wonderful solid brass antique door knocker in excellent all around condition. A most elegant shape with a surface almost entirely devoid of defects and blemishes. A mark to the rear of the mounting plate is for James Collins which probably explains why it has been so well made. There is a big old lump of iron riveted to the back of the base of the knocker arm adding weight (and presumably volume) to the action. The replacement strike button has been made from a solid brass adjustable foot rescued from an antique sideboard that had almost entirely been consumed by the worm. Reclaim, Restore, Recycle. Long replacement fixing studs included.
