This has had several coats of different coloured paint over its life of 100 years plus....we have stripped it back to bare metal so is like "near new" again. This is a lovely big solid cast iron Knocker from the famous old Birmingham metal-ware's maker of KENRICK & SONS.....Circa 1880-1900. Length is 8 1/2" and the width is 3-31/2" tapering at base to 2". There is space on the center plate to inscribe a name.
