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

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.

Raven Black

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.

Satin Silver

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
