Door Knockers

 

 

 

 

As American towns transformed into cities, the focal point of a fine new residence was its achitectural facade. Usually, great care was lavished on the front door, and many very handsome doorways were created. To announce the arrival of guests, a highly polished cast brass knocker was mounted as the center of attention on such doors.

We offer a selection drawn from a wide period of American history. One of the earliest types is the so-called "S" shaped knocker. Our W201 and W216 are two sizes of this still popular knocker.

These, like our other reproductions, are the very finest had made quality. Most have been reproduced from originals in our own collection. Standard finish is "Golden Glow" with clear lacquer applied.  We can omit the lacquer and the brass will tarnish naturally.  Proper types of mounting screws with brass nuts are always furnished.
