Material: Aged Brass
Our hare door knocker is named Vitus. He was created simply because we love hares and are lucky to see them occasionally in the fields close to our house in Devon. Vitus is a unique hare door knocker and is the first mammal 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 and also to show the beautiful structure of a hare’s back and limbs. Vitus is cast in a lying position with his front paws crossed and his back legs tucked slightly under his body. As well as gorgeous ears, we have also given him a rather cute tail. Our hare door knocker is the ideal size for knocking and is easy to hold for the perfect knocking experience. He is delicate and elegant but weighing almost 1kg he has a resounding knock. Our brass hare fits really well if you only have a narrow space on your front door to attach your door knocker.
Like all our door knockers, Vitus is individually handmade using brass and subtly engraved with our trademark.
What we love…
- Made entirely by hand
- Easy surface mount fixing with no visible screws
- Ideal gift for someone who loves wildlife, particularly hares!
- Design accentuates the magnificent ears
- A real talking point and wow factor
Fitting and care of your door knocker
Vitus is a surface mounted brass door knocker. Easy to install, our custom designed fitting bracket will ensure he stays firmly in place on your front door. As he is surface mounted, there will be no nuts or bolts seen protruding on the inside of your front door. We include screws and fittings for wooden doors. You can view detailed instructions on how to fit your hare door knocker here.
Our door knockers are darkened to give an aged appearance and a clear protective coating is added to preserve the colour. Your door knocker should remain in the same condition with minimal maintenance. We recommend cleaning by wiping with a cloth or washing with warm soapy water. You should not use metal cleaning products or abrasive materials. Over time, (many years but more quickly in salty or harsh environments) you will notice your door knocker becoming duller and darker in appearance as the protective coating thins.
