The lion has always held a high place in heraldry as an emblem of the deathless courage found in valiant warriors. It is said to be a lively image of a good soldier who must be valiant in courage, strong of body, politic in counsel, and a foe to fear in battle. Since it has a long reputation as having a noble nature and the title of King of the Beasts, it became one of the most common heraldic symbols in Europe and in England. This doorknocker is handmade by a leading British foundry that has been making quality brasswares for over 75 years, using traditional sand-casting and a first-run ingot brass mix rich in copper for depth of colour and durability. Once cooled, the doorknocker is removed from casting, shot-blasted to remove excess material, hand filed to smooth any rough edges, then hand polished to enhance the natural beasuty of quality brass.
No scrap or recycled brass is used in any of our brassware.

Lion Head (2 piece)  DK 18

Our two piece Lion Head door knocker is hand made by skilled craftsmen employed by a leading British foundry that has been creating quality brasswares for over 75 years. It is individually made using the sand-casting method and a pure ingot brass mix rich in copper for depth of colour and durability. No scrap or recycled brass is used…thus ensuring that no impurities are imbedded in the raw brass mix. After the cast is removed it is shot-blasted, hand dressed and hand filed to remove any excess material that may have been left during the casting. Each door knocker is hand polished to a high British standard to enhance the natural beauty of quality brass and antiqued to give it background and definition in its pattern. The antique colouration is removed from the more pronounced areas to give the finished piece a beautifully aged look. Each is made to last for generations so after installing your selection wait for your admiring guests to arrive.
