The figure forms the knocker with the back plate modeled on and marked The Unicorn Inn. The reverse is moulded with a gravestone below a crest with a bishop's mitre and crossed keys emblem. The gravestone reads Tom Chrudd 1762 Ripon Minster West Front with a date registration number to the lower edge dating the knocker to 1909. Tom Crudd nicknamed 'Old Boots' is a famous character who worked as the boot boy at the Unicorn Inn, a coaching inn in Ripon, Yorkshire. Tom had a nose and chin so long that he could hold a coin between them. His job was to wait on travellers at the Unicorn and help them to take off their boots greeting them with a pair of slippers in one hand and a boot jack in the other (as depicted on the door knocker). Guests were so taken with his odd appearance that they would frequently tip him, on condition that he held the coin between his nose and chin, with which he readily complied. There is a bar at the Unicorn Hotel devoted to Tom Crudd and it is rumoured that the ghost of Tom Crudd can still be found there. XUPES GUARANTEE This item has been fully inspected in house.
