Our door knockers are handcrafted so there may be some subtle variations from the images. Each piece is truly unique, engraved with our trademark and finished to order.
Since the inception of our collection, the image of this fox door knocker has lingered in our minds. We delved into numerous ideas, exploring a myriad of designs, until we ultimately settled on a dozing fox. With its form taking on a compact circular shape, and its bushy tail acting as a convenient handhold, our fox door knocker embodies both functionality and artistic allure.
As your visitor approaches, what initially appears as a conventional round knocker transforms into a delightful surprise – a charming fox. We have endeavoured to capture the graceful, agile, and curious nature of this magnificent creature. Even in a resting position, Manston, the fox, exudes an air of alertness, with his eyes wide open and ears perked up, he eagerly awaits your visitors. We have tried to strike a balance between portraying the intricate texture of fur and showcasing the fox’s overall structure and form.
With a substantial weight of 1.2kg, Manston delivers a resounding knock that will resonate through your home. He is not merely a functional element but a stunning piece of art that creates a focal point for an entrance. Suitable for both urban and rural abodes, Manston adds a captivating touch to any home.

Fitting your fox door knocker
Manston, our fox door knocker, is a surface-mounted brass knocker. Easy to install, our custom-designed fitting bracket will ensure it stays firmly in place on your front door. Our door knockers are suitable for wood doors as well as solid core composite doors and all screws and fittings are supplied.
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.
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.
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.
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

I purchased the beautiful Fox door knocker as a wedding gift. Everything from the speedy delivery, beautifully presented in a wooden box to the quality of the Fox itself were amazing. My friends adored the gift and took it over to Canada to hang on their front door in Nova Scotia.
