Door Knocker: Maltese Dolphin

Door Knocker: Maltese Dolphin


From our Nautical Collection comes the popular Maltese Dolphin seen on front doors in Valletts and across Malta. Ancient Greeks believed the dolphin was the carrier of souls of the dead to the islands of the Blessed. This doorknocker is handmade by a leading British foundry employing sand-casting and using a first-run ingot brass mix right in copper for depth of colour and durability.  Once cooled, the piece is removed from the cast, shot-blasted to remove excess material, hand polished to smooth any rough edges, then hand polished to enhance the natural beauty of quality brass. No scrap or recycled brass is used in any of our brassware. Approximate measurements: 9.25″ long, 3.25″ wide, and weighs slightly more than 2 pounds.
