This Victorian door knocker is based on the popular doctor’s door knocker – a classic brass knocker design introduced in the 1800s. Named Vida, it’s cast in a beautiful scroll shape and has a distinctive flower and leaf pattern engraved around the middle. It is smooth to touch and easy to knock. It suits any period door, even those with glass panels. A beautiful door knocker that communicates a sense of tradition and grace to anyone approaching your home. It looks particularly striking in a polished finish.

What we love…

  • Classic design with a twist
  • Understated elegance
  • Easy to hold and knock
  • Made entirely by hand
  • 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

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.


Our black patina gives the brass a lovely deep, rich colour that has a slight sheen. We add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, just wipe periodically with a soft cloth.
