Genuine Victorian Cast Iron Wellington Door Knocker of Circa 1840.
First shown by A. Kenrick & Co., in their 1840 catalogue, although probably available before that, the design likely to have been made after Wellingtons victory over Napoleon in 1815. The fixed portion of a clenched fist holds the business end, or knocker, consisting of a laurel wreath below a scroll, the lower centre having a lions head, all of this symbolises British strength and patriotism, a must have for the front doors of Great Britain. Great original casting detail.
We have stripped years of paint from this to reveal the great casting detail, treated for rust and then finished with satin black paint for protection. It retains it's original back and striking (new stud to this) plates, fixing stud and nut, the latter restricts the maximum door thickness to 1.1/2" (40 mm), we could if necessary fit a longer new stud, although it would be a shame to loose this part of it's history.
Measures 5" (128 mm) across wreath. Total drop 6.1/4" (160 mm). Weight 1.3 Kilo's.
