Antique Iron Lion Mask Door Knocker, old but sound
A genuine antique, heavy, cast iron lion mask door knocker. Missing one securing stud, the diamond hard iron mounting lugs resisted any attempt at tapping out so we got hold of some solid tungsten carbide cutters. After removing a suitable amount of old stud and iron we brazed some new, short studs and fitted some threaded connectors. The knocker will currently require a 20mm * 32mm recess to accommodate the original lugs and connectors meaning the minimum thickness of door should be at least 4cm thick. However the connectors are removable and they, along with the in-situ studs can be shortened by up to 5mm or slightly more if required. Long replacement fixing studs allow a door thickness of up to 8cm. Even longer studs can be supplied on request. In excellent all round condition with no pitting or cracking. Includes a good quality replacement iron striking button.
