This beautiful bird door knocker was created with the snipe and woodcock in mind. Our main challenge was designing the impressive bill so it didn’t touch the door. It has a specially designed bracket that has been precisely positioned in the centre of the body. Ransley knocks with his tail but, we’re happy to say, his bill doesn’t touch the door! Ransley is a heavy door knocker and suits a variety of door styles but looks particularly at home on a cottage door.

What we love…

  • Looks impressive from both the front and side
  • Concealed fixing bracket
  • Unique bird design
  • Perfect for a country property
  • Natural addition to a bird lover’s home

Fitting your door knocker

Fitted using an easy surface mounted fixing, there are no visible screws on either side of the 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

A vintage appearance is achieved using a natural chemical-free patination process. A clear sealant is applied which protects your door knocker and prevents it from tarnishing. This is a thin and durable coating that, unlike a lacquer, will not crack or peel. It also gives protection against acid rain and salt air. No need for metal cleaning products, just wipe with a soft cloth periodically.

Polished Brass

Our polished door knockers show brass in its natural state. After casting they are highly polished until very bright and shiny. This finish can be maintained using a metal cleaner and soft brush or if left unpolished your door knocker will tarnish and age naturally. If you’d like your door knocker to remain highly polished without regular cleaning, we can add our protective sealant. Please let us know by making a note at checkout.

Raven Black

We apply a patina to the brass which creates a soft black finish that has a matt appearance. The brass is baked and the colour is left to mature before we add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, just wipe periodically with a soft cloth.

Satin Silver

We use a metal plating process over the brass to achieve a stylish silver with a matt finish. Our sealant is applied to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, just wipe periodically with a soft cloth and warm soapy water
