 The Whale Tail Door Knocker is cast in solid brass. Brass and bronze are copper-based alloys. The yellow brass alloy used in many of Michael's designs contains 70% copper and produces a warm, traditional brass look. Red bronze contains almost 85% copper. This additional copper content gives the bronze alloy its rich, reddish undertone. The mirrored finish of polished brass and polished bronze is achieved through varying degrees of sanding and buffing. Michael uses these techniques to highlight or accent the raised areas on a piece. Each Doorknocker is hand polished and then the knocker is then coated with a clear lacquer to protect the original polished finish. Michael Healy has signed this Lobster Doorknocker in the mold, confirming its authenticity and quality craftsmanship.

Customer Reviews
Julia Martin
I bought one of these beautiful Door Knockers during a visit to New England in 1999. It lives on the front door of my home in the United Kingdom and looks stunning! Handling the Door Knocker over the past 13 years, coupled with the effects of the weather, has tarnished the piece, but I have had it cleaned, polished and re-varnished, and it looks as good today as it did when it was first fitted. It's a lasting memory of a wonderful holiday and a superb addition to the entrance to my home.
