This “grand-daddy” of our solid British brass lion-head door knockers is a larger version of the Number 10 lion head doorknocker and would make a lovely addition to your front door, but may be too heavy for a fiberglass door. This piece has been very popular with businesses and professional buildings where a strong message or bold presence is desired. This is the largest and heaviest door knocker in our inventory, measuring 11.5″ by 8″ and weighing 7 pounds. It is handmade by a leading British foundry that has been creating quality brasswares for over 75 years, employing traditional sand-casting and using a first-run ingot brass mix rich in copper for depth of colour and durability. No recycled brass is used in any of our brassware insuring that no impurities will be in the mix and that only the best quality English brass is in our collections. Once sand-casting is complete the doorknocker is individually shot-blasted to remove excess material, hand filed to remove an rough edges, then hand polished to a high standard to enhance the natural beauty of quality brass. It is antiqued to provide background colour and definition to the pattern and finally, the antique colouration is relieved away from the brass on the more pronounced areas of the casting to give it a beautiful aged look. The piece is then hand rubbed to accentuate the detail and enhance the true beauty deserved by quality brass. This large door knocker makes a bold statement and will bring pride of ownership to its owner.
