Spectacular World Class Antique Lion Head Door Knocker

Circa 1795-1840

Beautiful hand forged cast iron

Patina aged to perfection & carefully preserved

Lovely traces of red & gold paint...by design I left these intact...they add tremendous character & beauty to the piece!!

Piece has been meticulously cleaned & sealed to preserve the patina & protect it from the elements

Very rare design,, the knocker handle has a vertical drop design from the mouth before becoming a ring! That is extremely rare & gives the piece a fantastic look!!

Very detailed casting, I love the whisker dimples in the nose!

This impressive knocker will certainly make a grand entry statement & get rave reviews!

All the best, Bryan

MOUNTING DETAILS

*fits a door 1 1/2”-1 3/4” thick

*it could go on a thicker door you would need to drill holes to countersink deeper for the washer & nut

*you will need 4 holes in your door, 2 for the threaded mounting rods & 2 to recess the shoulder area of the threaded rods so the knocker will lay flush to the door...an easy task for a locksmith, handyman or carpenter!

*I restored the threads on the mounting rods, the nuts are solid & secure!
