★★I have a variety of door knockers to suit your home. Please take a look. ★★

Please note that this is the real deal, original. This door knocker has been reproduced in brass many times and all examples currently on the market are reproductions. But this one is original and bronze. Very rare. This Antique Door Knocker is in the form of Cerberus & Hades of Greek mythology. The three-headed Hound of Hell would loyally stand guard by the river Styx under Hades' command. This door knocker is massive & heavy. It features incredible attention to detail inspired by the Neo-Gothic movement. The asymmetrical fabrication of each dog's head, body and serpentine tail make this door knocker seem alive. Hades' head receives each blow from the immense striker as if to awaken him to announce your guest's arrival. Construction is solid bronze. The door knocker is not new. It is a salvaged item and has developed a patina from age and use. Overall condition is excellent. Again, this is quite the grand door knocker. Go ahead... buy it, install it & make your neighbors jealous!

★Measurements: 11-1/4" Tall by 5-1/2" Wide by 2-1/2" Deep ★Mid 1800s★

★And now, the sales pitch...

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 collectibility through time has increased and will definitely increase further.

The obvious place for a door knocker is on your front door but they can be used in so many other areas. Bedrooms, bathrooms, dorm rooms, office spaces, workshops, garages, man caves etc... the possibilities are endless. Some door knockers are beautiful enough to simply hang on your wall for display.

Door knockers can also reflect your personality or the personality of your home. Is your home Victorian, Gothic, Art Nouveau, Art Deco or Mid Century Modern? Are you fond of particular breed of dog or other animal? Do you want your door knocker to say you're strong, intelligent, or maybe the class clown? There are knockers out there for you.
