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


Our woodpecker door knocker is the second bird in our growing collection. Unlike other woodpecker door knockers, it knocks with its tail resulting in a lovely resonating sound. It has a specially modified bracket that ensures the beak does not touch the door (no matter how hard you knock!)

Cosima has intricate feathered detailing, feels smooth to touch and fits in your hand for a perfect door-knocking experience. This woodpecker door knocker brings a touch of the countryside to any front door.

What we love…

  • Unusual design as it knocks with its tail
  • Looks beautiful from front and side
  • Bracket does not impose on the shape of the bird
  • Ideal gift for a bird lover

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.

This item arrived very quickly,well packaged and I am very happy with it’s quality. The wooden box it comes in is beautiful and I loved the explanation of how it is made - which made me inspect it closely for any sign of a join (none found). Looking forward to my husband opening it on Christmas Day.

Received my Woodpecker door knocker in super fast time. Arrived in good packaging that protected the beautiful wooden box that housed the woodpecker in.
This is my second purchase and thrilled with both door knockers. Can’t wait to get another.

Exceptional quality

We built our house 26 years ago and had never felt the need for a door knocker until we came across Adams and Mack and their beautiful woodpecker door knocker. Very solid, well made…a work of art on our front door. It was delivered very promptly and packaged in a beautiful wooden box that had my family arguing over who should get to keep it.
