Seller: sjmaro (572) 100%, Location: Barnegat, New Jersey, Ships to: US, Item: 322342814570 This is a listing for an estate found Vintage Brass Highly Detailed Cornish Piskie Door Knocker. The length of the fixed portion is 3 9/16", and varies from 1 1/8" wide to 1/2" at its narrowest portion. The spacing between the mounting holes is approximately 3". The hinged portion of the knocker is 2 7/8" tall, 1 3/4" at the widest point, and 1 1/8" wide at its bottom. The knocker has a deep patina, and the casting has good detail throughout. I leave the decision of whether or not to polish it to the new owner. The moveable portion of the knocker is apparently a forest scene which is outlined by what appears to be a wishbone. The two arms of the wishbone are decorated with mushrooms and assorted foliage. The center features a detailed Piskie (pixie) holding a lantern and seated on a large mushroom. Below the pixie is the inscription: I GUIDE YE WELL CORNISH PISKIE The fixed portion of the knocker is also detailed with what appears to be a vine or tree, and foliage. The two mounting holes are slightly less than 1/8" in diameter. There are no mounting screws. The underside of the hinged portion is stamped with two letters, which I cannot make out. The letters are followed by the stamped number 749388. The rivet in the hinge is solidly fixed, and hinged portion moves smoothly. This is a unique and unusual vintage knocker. The pictures are part of the description. Please ask any questions before purchase. Thanks for looking!
