Seller: ihavetoomuchgreatstuff (3,875) 100%, Location: Brooksville, Florida, Ships to: US, Item: 252586442501 This Vintage Brass Lion's Head Door Knocker is in really nice condition. The ring on the knocker appears to be made of fairly pure looking copper.It is hinged with a post through the swivel hinge and a screw through the portion that holds the other two ends together. The top has something of a jagged look to it - likely a casting mark. This old type of Lion's Head Door Knocker was normally affixed to a door with a nail. I am not sure of the age of this piece but if I'm not mistaken I remember seeing a few of them in the early 1960's (with the hole between the eyes and the hinged ring) and they weren't new even back then. Measurements Approximate: Oval 3" x 2 3/4" (diameter top to bottom & left to right) Round ring diameter: 2.5" (R) SHIPPING COST PLEASE READ!!!
