‘Fun-loving’ and ‘intelligent’ were the two qualities we thought of when creating Huxley. His sleek body shape was perfect for a door knocker so our main challenge was to capture the infamous Dachshund personality in our design. We decided on an alert, lying position, with head slightly tilted as though ready to pounce on uninvited visitors! With his head up, he looks you directly in the eye. He’s serious but those gorgeous droopy ears make him hopelessly cute. Weighing in at a hefty 820g, Huxley gives you fair warning when someone’s at your door.

What we love…

  • Beautiful droopy Dachshund ears
  • Focus on the head and expression showing a loving and courageous nature
  • Concealed fixing bracket
  • Looks beautiful from front and side
  • Perfect for any Dachshund lover

Fitting your dachshund door knocker

Huxley is a surface-mounted brass door knocker. Easy to install, our custom-designed fitting bracket will ensure it stays firmly in place on your front door. As it is surface mounted, there will be no nuts or bolts seen protruding on the inside of your front door. Our door knockers are suitable for wood doors as well as solid core composite doors and all screws and fittings are supplied.


Aged Brass (natural)

An aged finish is achieved using a natural chemical-free patination process. Your door knocker will continue to age and, after many years, develop a bronze colour. A metal cleaner can be used to restore the colour and give it a natural sheen or it can be left to age and cleaned using a dry cloth and soft toothbrush. We recommend using a clear wax after cleaning.

Aged Brass (with sealant)

You can choose to add a sealant to our aged brass finish. It is a transparent clear protective coating that helps prevent your door knocker from ageing further. It does not alter the appearance or colour of the finish. You should not use a metal cleaner on sealed products, simply clean periodically with a dry soft cloth or brush. A clear wax is recommended after cleaning for added protection.

Polished Brass

Our polished brass door knockers are highly polished until bright and shiny. To maintain this appearance, your door knocker will require regular cleaning with a metal cleaner. If left unpolished, it will tarnish and age naturally developing an aged patina. Depending on the environment, it will be the same colour as our aged finish in roughly two years.

Raven Black

We apply a patina to the brass which creates a soft black colour with a satin finish. The brass is baked and the colour is left to mature before we add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, simply wipe periodically with a soft cloth. A clear wax can be applied for added protection.

Satin Silver

We use a metal plating process over the brass to achieve a stylish silver with a matt finish. This finish matches well with either pewter or satin nickel door furniture. Our sealant is applied to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, simply wipe periodically with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. A clear wax can be applied for added protection.

I’m so happy with our dachshund door knocker. It’s exceeded our expectations and the level of detail is unmatched. We went with the polished brass and the cast really does capture the character of dachshunds. Even the packaging is of great quality and a nice touch. Definitely recommend. Thank you Adams and Mack!
