Looking a bit like a Wally Bird, this fantastic painted cast iron Toucan door knocker has plenty of character. Our consignor says this sentinel bird graced the front door of her childhood home in the early 1950’s.
But, let your door be forewarned, it is quite big – measures approximately 10.25 inches tall x 4.3 inches wide x 3.75 inches deep. And, it is heavy – weighs just under 8 pounds. So, if you have a puny door, this bird is not for you.
It has a lovely, old surface patina with appropriate wear to paint. It has minor rust – mostly on back of bird and beak. Although the pin head is intact on one side, the pin itself (which holds on the large knocker beak) is missing, so you'll need to replace it before use. See all photos.
No apparent maker’s marks. There are two mounting holes under the beak area of the body. Ship standard 14x10x10
