It was a challenge to create a functional dog door knocker design that portrayed the intelligent, gentle disposition of a greyhound whilst highlighting its powerful sleek form. After many experimental castings, we settled on a resting pose. Turned slightly to the left, our greyhound’s head rests on outstretched front legs and his muscular hind legs are bent underneath his rump. The subtle curve in Isaurus’ body shows the beautiful contours of a greyhound’s back and neck. We were careful to keep the intricate detail in the front paws and the delicate structure of the ribs. The characteristic greyhound ears are resting in a neutral position.

Although slender and graceful, this dog door knocker weighs almost 1.2 kg and has a resounding knock. The long thin body lends itself perfectly to the functionality of a door knocker. It rests on a hidden knocker stop and is the perfect shape to hold and knock. It is a statement piece and is perfect if you’re looking for a quirky alternative to a traditional Georgian door knocker (or just because you love greyhounds!)

What we love…

  • Interesting curved form which is easy to hold and knock
  • Ideal gift for a greyhound lover
  • Intricate details in paws and bone structure
  • A real statement piece
  • Shows the character of a greyhound

Fitting your door knocker

Isaurus 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.

FINISH OPTIONS

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.
