Vida is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a classic Victorian door knocker. The inspiration for her elegant shape came from the curl of a fern frond. To enhance the link to this beautiful plant we engraved a flower and leaf pattern around her middle. She is smooth to touch and easy to knock. She suits any period door, including those with glass panels. A classic door knocker that communicates a sense of tradition and grace to anyone approaching your home. Vida looks particularly striking in a polished finish.

What we love…

  • Classic design with a twist
  • Understated elegance
  • Easy to hold and knock
  • Mirrors the curl of a fern frond
  • Intricate flower and leaf engraving

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 (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.
