Our first mammal, Vitus, was born simply because we love hares. It was an interesting challenge to create a design that captured the hare’s energy and beautiful ears. Vitus is cast in a lying position with front paws crossed and back legs tucked. At close to 1kg, our gorgeous hare door knocker, delivers a resounding knock, yet is surprisingly delicate, elegant, and easy to hold.

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 (natural)

An aged finish is achieved using a natural chemical-free patination process. Your door knocker will continue to age and, after many years, develop a bronze colour. A metal cleaner can be used to restore the colour and give it a natural sheen or it can be left to age and cleaned using a dry cloth and soft toothbrush. We recommend using a clear wax after cleaning.

Aged Brass (with sealant)

You can choose to add a sealant to our aged brass finish. It is a transparent clear protective coating that helps prevent your door knocker from ageing further. It does not alter the appearance or colour of the finish. You should not use a metal cleaner on sealed products, simply clean periodically with a dry soft cloth or brush. A clear wax is recommended after cleaning for added protection.

Polished Brass

Our polished brass door knockers are highly polished until bright and shiny. To maintain this appearance, your door knocker will require regular cleaning with a metal cleaner. If left unpolished, it will tarnish and age naturally developing an aged patina. Depending on the environment, it will be the same colour as our aged finish in roughly two years.

Raven Black

We apply a patina to the brass which creates a soft black colour with a satin finish. The brass is baked and the colour is left to mature before we add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, simply wipe periodically with a soft cloth. A clear wax can be applied for added protection.

Satin Silver

We use a metal plating process over the brass to achieve a stylish silver with a matt finish. This finish matches well with either pewter or satin nickel door furniture. Our sealant is applied to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, simply wipe periodically with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. A clear wax can be applied for added protection.
