Cecil Bronze Lion Head Door Knocker
Life is no fun when the wolves are at your door, but it can be a total thrill with this gorgeous lion gracing your entrance. In fact, this lion door knocker is stately enough to chase the wolves away!
Meet Cecil, the bronze lion head door knocker that can transform any front door into a work of art. That’s because he’s a work of art himself, handcrafted out of solid bronze and highlighted with hand-applied precious metal finishes.
Cecil measures 11 inches high by 7 inches wide, with a 3-inch projection at the highest point on his face. The solid bronze door knocker weighs in at a hefty 15 pounds, providing guests with a formidable way to announce their arrival.
Every detail on this lion head door knocker is treated to extreme attention, from the graceful points on Cecil’s ears to fine hairs on his mane and chin. Darker accents provide depth around his eyes, mouth and other facial features, while the knocker handle swoops down into an elegant, highly detailed loop.
Even the mounting system takes all the details into account, providing an unobtrusive attachment that won’t show hardware on your door’s interior.
Cecil comes in four superb finishes to best suit your existing décor and taste. Choose from traditional lacquered bronze for sophisticated flair, a vintage patina bronze for an antique appearance, oxidized verdigris for an antique copper look, or brushed silvery nickel for subtle glimmer.
All finishes are made of real precious metals and applied by hand, ensuring each door knocker finish is unique.
How It’s Made
Some serious work goes into creating this amazing work of art. Each door knocker is hand-poured using the lost-wax casting process, also known as cire-perdue if you want to get fancy about it.
The process involves pouring molten bronze into a mold that was previously crafted using a wax model. The original wax model is melted and drained out of the mold, while the mold remains to create Cecil in all his bronze glory.
