Please select your finish. Scroll down for information on finish options.

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.

FINISH OPTIONS

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 Nickel

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

Install difficulties

Absolutely glad with my knocker, just having difficulty getting second screw securing main bracket… you provided a tool designed to help; it didn’t. If there was a removable pin that would make installing for me easier. Love the piece. Thanks Richard

Lovely knocker!

My bird knocker arrived quickly from the UK (to Maryland)via DHL. The packaging is lovely and the instructions and assembly components really well designed and engineered. The bird himself is terrific. I went with the antiqued finish and he looks great on his new perch. Very impressed overall with the quality, workmanship and thoughtfulness. Could not be more pleased!

Service and quality from a bygone age

Jenny and Mike have obviously created something really special here. Fantastic quality door knocker that has made the front door look fabulous (without having to drill through it). Really clever design but with handcrafted quality. Add to that the excellent service and no plastic in the quality packaging when Ransley arrived, I�d give them a 5 star rating. Great follow up from Jenny too. You both deserve the best of luck. It�s been a pleasure dealing with you. Thanks again.

Lovely product and experience !

My beautiful Ransley arrived very well packed and it is absolutely gorgeous! It is of superb quality and it has fantastic attention to detail. The presentation box and the elegant black velvet pouch he came in are just of an exquisite taste and give the product such a luxurious feel! All of that combined with your excellent customer service and great communication. All in all a lovely purchase experience. Highly recommended.
