Our Picks

1
Shiny Door Knocker

Shiny Door Knocker

Forge Hardware Studio

Made from brass, this knocker has a shiny gold finish that will be seen for miles around. Including a pull handle and two mounting holes, it measures 7.5 inches tall and weighs one pound exactly. However, it does not include a lock.

$106.31

Designer Advice:

The gleaming finish of this knocker is perfect for antique doors with dark wood stains. On a lighter door, the intricate detail will not stand out as much. This knocker is also an investment at its price, so we don’t recommend it if you live in a rainy climate where it could tarnish easily unless you cover it with a protective spray.

Iron Antique Lion Head Door Knocker

Iron Antique Lion Head Door Knocker

Design Toscano

Inspired by traditional English designs, this knocker is made from sturdy cast iron for a long-lasting product. It is a replica of 19th-century door knockers and comes with one handle. Moreover, it measures 8.5 inches tall and weighs 3lbs.

$29.67 $38.9

Designer Advice:

For a true English feel, embellish the traditional vibe of your knocker by surrounding your front door with roses and other bright flowers. The vintage style would look best with doors that are wood or feature colors like burgundy or navy blue. Both of these colors will accentuate the stunning look of this knocker and fit well with the aesthetic.

Silver Lion Door Knocker

Silver Lion Door Knocker

The Renovators Supply Inc.

This knocker is made from tarnish-resistant chrome and will remain shiny on your door even in changing weather conditions. Accentuated by a handle, it measures just over 6 inches tall and weighs 1.6 lbs. The distance between the screw holes is 5 inches.

$70.15

Designer Advice:

If you’re not a fan of gold or bronze, this silver lion would look great on lighter doors. It is also slightly more contemporary than others on this list, meaning it’s a good option if you’re worried about your knocker looking too old-fashioned. However, make sure to polish your knocker so the silver stays looking fresh and bright over time.

5

Embellished Brass Lion Door Knocker

Embellished Brass Lion Door Knocker

Bloomsbury Market

This brass knocker measures 6.75 inches tall and weighs approximately 1.5lbs. It has two mounting holes and has been hand-painted for a personal touch. The handle additionally has a tarnished copper finish for a subtle antique look.

$62.99

Designer Advice:

The warm bronze of this door knocker would look best paired with cream or dark wood doors. This is because a black door will make the knocker blend in and conceal some of the more embellished details like the lion’s mane and teeth. Unfortunately, it is not weather resistant, so it’s best for doors that are covered by a porch or overhang.
