This Antique Heavy Duty Solid Brass Door Knocker is in the form of the Spirit of the Forest - Green Man. The Green Man is a powerful Celtic, pre-Christian mythological symbol of renewal and nature. As with most representations of Green Man, his head and face are composed of various foliage. The door knocker is adorned with various forest flowers, berries and leaves. The rear of this door knocker is stamped with the British Diamond Registry Mark which dates the design between 1868 and 1883. The marks are not clear enough to provide the exact year of manufacture. In addition, it has another mark which is hardly readable also. Beautiful craftsmanship throughout. It has been constructed of solid brass. The door knocker is not new. It is a salvaged item showing patina from age and use. Overall condition is Excellent. Please remember that Victorian items are always used, never new or in new condition. They have sat on many tables, held by many loving hands and lived an eventful life. They may have flaws which is part of the character of each individual Victorian item. Please take a look at the pictures as they are part of the description. Size: 8.25” x 3.5” These authentic door knockers are rare and don't come up very often. Why buy a salvaged door knocker? Salvaged door knockers are often constructed of much better materials and the craftsmanship is unparalleled. Not only have they proven that they will last through the years, but their value and collectability through time has increased and will definitely increase further.
