Otto is the most recent addition to our door knocker collection and probably our most ambitious. We were keen to portray the traits of an otter; its powerful webbed feet, long body, thick fur and muscular tail as well as show its playful personality. Our otter door knocker is facing down on the door with its head slightly raised making a perfect hand-hold for knocking. Its head is tilted indicating alertness to danger and we added a fish in its jaws to enhance the link to the wilderness. We have tried to capture the natural characteristics of this wild creature as closely as possible; typical of an otter, his ears are almost hidden in his fur and his eyes are small.

The fixing bracket is hidden underneath his tail and rump to ensure it is unseen by visitors as they approach your door. Otto is one of our smaller door knockers but he still pulls a punch weighing just over 700g. It knocks with its front paws which carry the weight to make a resounding knock. A truly unique piece, our otter door knocker is a perfect addition to a riverside or coastal property.

What we loveā€¦

  • Unusual design with fish in jaws
  • Detailing of webbed feet and fur
  • Perfect for coastal or riverside property
  • Made entirely by hand
  • Bracket is invisible from the front

Fitting your door knocker

Made entirely by hand and fitted using an easy surface mounted fixing, there are no visible screws on either side of the door. Recommended for wood doors. Screws and fixing bracket supplied.


Aged Brass

Natural chemical-free aged brass finish with a slight sheen. A clear sealant is applied which will protect your door knocker and prevent it from tarnishing. This is a thin and durable coating that, unlike a lacquer, will not crack or peel. It contains elevated levels of anti-oxidants which gives protection against acid rain and salt air. No need for metal cleaning products, just wipe with a soft cloth periodically. If you would prefer your door knocker to continue to age further, please leave a note at checkout and we will not apply our sealant.

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 wire brush or if left unpolished your door knocker will dull and age naturally. If you would 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 pewter finish is currently available for our Dachshund. A quality pewter plating has been applied to the brass and our sealant added. Wipe periodically with a soft cloth.
