Seller: antiquedoorknockers (233) 100%, Location: Wethersfield, Connecticut, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 281313341099 Material: Brass, Details: 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 an American Bald Eagle. This insignia was adopted by the US after its Revolutionary War with Great Britain. A bald eagle was chosen specifically because it was indigenous to North America and because, in search of its own identity, the US no longer wanted to use Britain's insignia - the lion. This particular style of eagle door knocker with the bird perched on top looking right into the distance was recast from the door knocker once hanging from the door of the John Hancock House in Massachusetts. The door knocker is an ideal size with a fantastic patriotic theme. It was manufactured by Peerage which is a sure sign of quality craftsmanship. Note the fantastic detail of the handle! The door knocker is not new. It is a salvaged item and has patina from age and use. Overall condition is Excellent. Go ahead... buy it, install it & make your neighbors jealous. ★ Measurements: 6-1/2" Tall by 3-1/2" Wide by 1-1/4" Deep ★ c.1950 ★ ★★★★ 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.
