Lion Door Knockers

This beautiful and noble creature has long since been the epitome of all things regal and traditionally British.

From the earliest Coats of Arms, we see this magnificent animal depicted in all his glory on emblems and badges, flags and mascots. Perhaps it’s the strength, power and courage that we admire and as king of the jungle, he is almost certainly a leader.

Whatever your perception, the lion door knocker has been with us for centuries, adorning our castles, manor houses and mansions.

We hope to help keep this wonderfully British tradition, alive and thriving with our lovely collection some of which are splendid reproductions of some very early and quite famous examples.

Background Info

Immortalised on coats of arms, favoured by royalty and still seen today in Trafalgar Square in all their glory the lion has been a proud ambassador of Britain for centuries.

The perfect inspiration for door knockers lions have for many years also been the inspiration behind some of the most beautiful and wonderfully classical door furniture. The famed design even makes an appearance in Charles Dickens’s 19th Century classic, A Christmas Carol.

Through our range of traditionally crafted styles you are able to own a piece of this rich history to proudly display on your front door.
