Antique Brass Door Knockers
We have available for purchase a very large selection of genuine antique brass door knockers, many of which are from the Victorian period. We have been fascinated with these over a forty year period, and have sold many, as well as accumulating a large private collection of these beautifully manufactured items.
Brass front door furniture was generally fitted to the more expensive Victorian houses, although not exclusively, as there are many examples of simple cottages, both weatherboard and brick, with original brass door knockers (and centre door pulls).
The front door of a Period House makes an important statement about the authenticity and quality of the restoration/renovation that has been undertaken. Thus, an original door knocker is an essential element whereas, by contrast, an inappropriate, chrome-plated, poorly cast reproduction calls into question the attention to detail throughout the house.
All of our door knockers are complete with strikers, and all bolts and nuts ready for fitting. It is important that you measure the distance between the vertical mouldings of your front door, to ensure that a chosen knocker is not too wide.
