The Frog Door Knocker is sand-cast in solid Nickel Silver and Polished Chrome. Nickel Silver is an alloy that has a warm silver color which is attained by adding nickel to bronze. Michael combines a high polished finish with brushed accents to generate a contemporary look. A stainless steel brush on a high speed lathe is used to create the brushed effects. The mirrored finish of polished nickel silver is achieved through varying degrees of sanding and buffing. Michael uses these techniques to highlight or accent the raised areas on a piece. The Frog Door Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan. Michael has many childhood memories of summer afternoons spent trying to catch frogs in his backyard. How happy he would have been to have caught a frog as large as your Frog Door Knocker. This playful Frog Door Knocker is a reminder of the innocence of youth and will surely bring smiles to your guests’ faces.
