Our hare door knocker was the first mammal to be included in our collection. It was an interesting challenge creating a door knocker design that captured the spirit of a hare. We wanted the ears to be prominent as well as show the beautiful structure of a hare’s back and limbs. Vitus is cast in a lying position with its front paws crossed and back legs tucked slightly under its body. As well as gorgeous ears, it has a rather cute tail. Our hare door knocker is easy to hold for the perfect knocking experience. It is delicate and elegant but weighing almost 1kg it has a resounding knock.

What we love…

  • Design accentuates a hare’s magnificent ears
  • A real talking point and wow factor
  • Ideal gift for someone who loves wildlife, particularly hares!
  • Made entirely by hand
  • Looks beautiful from the front and side

Fitting your door knocker

Vitus is a surface mounted brass door knocker. Easy to install, our custom-designed fitting bracket will ensure it stays firmly in place on your front door. As it is surface mounted, there will be no nuts or bolts seen protruding on the inside of your front door. Our door knockers are suitable for wood doors and 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.
