American craftsman, Michael Healy, has created a distinctive line of hand-cast door knockers to add a luxurious coastal touch to your front entry. The Whale Tail Door Knocker is sand-cast in your choice of solid Brass, Nickel Silver, or Oiled Bronze. The brass alloy used contains 70% copper, which produces a warm, traditional brass look, and a rich, reddish undertone. The nickel silver door knocker is cast in solid nickel silver, an alloy that has a warmer silver color attained by adding nickel to bronze. The Oiled Bronze finish is attained by successively dipping raw bronze castings into a patina solution and then buffing them to a satin finish. Repetition of this process creates the rich, dark multi-tone Oiled Bronze finish.
Each Doorknocker is hand polished and coated with a clear lacquer to protect the polished finish, then signed by the artist to confirm its authenticity and quality craftsmanship. Door knocker measures 6" tall x 6" wide x 2.5" deep. Mounting hardware included. 2-3 week delivery.
