SOUTHWOLD JACK is a famous icon of Southwold in Suffolk UK. He is a ‘Clock Jack’ who resides in St. Edmund’s Church in Southwold – a replica also sits on the wall of ADNAMS brewery. He arrived in Southwold when the church was built. Named ‘Jack the Smiter’, he stands 4 feet 4 inches tall and is constructed of painted wood. His armour is that of a soldier from the Wars of the Roses in the 1400s.  His role was to strike the hours on the church bell with his battleaxe.Today he still strikes the bell before special services to inform the congregation to stand up as the clergy and choir walk past.
This neat vintage solid brass Door Knocker is 4 3/4" in length and is in lovely condition.
