William Morris French Art Deco Large Door Knocker 1930’s – Antique Hardware An exceptional piece of hardware – a pure French Art Deco door knocker from an estate sale in northern France. Made in the mid-1920’s of iron with a polished surface, it is unusually large. Designed in two parts, the main plate measures 12 inches across by 5 ¼ inches while the movable knocker part is 6 1/8 inches wide and 3 5/8 inches high. Assembled, the knocker measures 7 ½ inches long. On the back is stamped ‘Déposé’ which means patented in French and JCR, which are probably the initials of the manufacturer. The front of the knocker is styled with a beautiful geometric design, very French Art Deco. It is very heavy – weighing almost 5 lbs and is attached with three large screws (not included). It is in very good condition with a few traces of surface wear. Such an original hand knocker would look both original and stunning on a large, thick period door.
