Door Knockers

Colby Smith has been making door knockers since 1976. The workshop, in Swansea, MA, is where he and his wife, Jane, design, pattern and finish the door knockers. The metal is poured at a local New England foundry.

These door knockers are substantial - easily recognized from a distance and interesting in detail up close. Each piece is sand cast in solid yellow or red brass, hand finished, assembled and lacquered for tarnish resistance. Various color patinas and nickel plating can also be applied to any design. Mounting hardware is provided for use on wood, metal or fiberglass/composite doors. If ever needed, Colby will completely refinish his door knockers for a small fee.

The Drawing Room is a proud retailer of Colby's door knockers.
