ABOUT LION’S HEAD DOOR KNOCKERS AND DOOR KNOBS
The Lion, “King of Beasts” has always been a favourite symbol in architecture, interiors, art, and statues. The Lion is a symbol of strength, courage and royalty.
The Lion was one of the most important symbols of the Roman Empire and was also found in Persian, Macedonian, Hellenistic and Greek art and sculpture. It has gone through the generations right to the present day.
Amongst our door furniture ranges you will find Lion door knobs, a Centre Door Knob and a pair of door knobs. These are 75mm in diameter, so spectacular pieces for making an impression on your door. They are available in unlacquered brass or polished nickel plate. The castings have great detail and character.
We also have a Lion Door Knocker, which is the most popular door knocker in the range. This is also available in unlacquered brass or antique nickel plate. The most famous Lion Door Knocker is the one on 10 Downing Street, this one has a blackened finish.
One of our most unusual items is a Lion Head Lock cover and knocker. This was cast from an original and enables you to cover a Yale or Chubb lock, which can look out of place on a traditional door.
