    These brass are mounted in a solid oak picture frame. With red felt background to show off the brasses better. Collected from antique markets & over the internet. About 24'' X 24" square.

      Great do they have a use or are they just novelty pieces.

      Wow, these are really beautiful. Are they antiques or not?
    4. Knockersfan, 5 years ago
      To mcheconi.
      By definition an antique must be 100 years old or more. Most of my brass door knockers have a stamped registration number on the back. example R152525 for the large Widdecombe Fair knocker. (The one with the old men on a horse)
      This is the registered design date, 1891. Not necessarily when it was made. but from the patina (condition) I think it was. some are just as old & others up to about the 1930's.
      P.S. I have been taking pictures for about 50 years. Sometimes modifying old roll film cameras to take special wide angle pictures.
      Regards Terry.

      Thank you for your answer Terry. I think they are gorgeous pieces. Nice to know about you being a photographer and working with film cameras. I am starting a small camera collection (and struggling to keep it small!) and still learning. I take mostly bird pictures using digital equipment.

      To Zowie.
      The smaller ones are really only for display. But the larger ones like the King Richard I style knocker I posted last month,would be suitable for mounting to a door. It would make a very loud noise!

      At times that is what is need & others times if you choose not to answer you cannot say you never heard.
