Seller: antiquedoorknockers (225) 100%, Location: Wethersfield, Connecticut, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 282179777471 I have a variety of door knockers to suit your home. Please take a look at my other listings. ★★★★ This Antique Door Knocker is in the form of a Dolphin. It is a representation of the dolphin images found in highly stylized examples of Roman art and architecture. The dolphin has several symbolic meanings including community, power and playfulness. This participial example is extremely detailed. Its scaled body twists to the very top of a fanned tail while a classic anthemion rests atop its scowling brow. The crispness of the details is remarkable and not dulled like with others on the market. Construction is sold (and I mean SOLID) brass. It was produced in one of the door knocker capitals of the world, the island of Malta. The door knocker is not new. It is a salvaged item and has some patina from age and use. Overall condition is excellent. Go ahead... buy it, install it & make your neighbors jealous! ★Measurements including the cross shaped backplate:6-3/4" Tall by 4" Wide by 4" Deep ★ ca.1925 ★ ★★★★ Why buy a salvaged door knocker? Salvaged door knockers are often constructed of much better materials and the craftsmanship is unparalleled. Not only have they proven that they will last through the years, but their value and collectibility through time has increased and will definitely increase further. The obvious place for a door knocker is on your front door but they can be used in so many other areas. Bedrooms, bathrooms, dorm rooms, office spaces, workshops, garages, man caves etc... the possibilities are endless. Some door knockers are beautiful enough to simply hang on your wall for display. Door knockers can also reflect your personality or the personality of your home. Is your home Victorian, Gothic, Art Nouveau, Art Deco or Mid Century Modern? Are you fond of particular breed of dog or other animal? Do you want your door knocker to say you're strong, intelligent, or maybe the class clown? There are knockers out there for you. ★ Please ask questions if I've left anything out. Thank you! ★ I love International buyers: Postage includes Delivery Confirmation & Insurance.
