To go along with our new black front door, we need a door knocker. The door used to have one, and the previous owners decided to take it with them (along with the vanities in the bathrooms and 90% of the outlet covers - so odd). Anyways, I turned to my standby - Etsy :)
The first one that came up on my search was this :
But in all seriousness -
Option A : Vintage Brass with an area to engrave our last name $25+s/h
This is the most traditional option -
Option B : Vintage Brass Lion (awwww) $28 + s/h
He's cute and he reminds me of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
Option 3 : Solid Brass Pinapple $15 + s/h
This reminds me of college, I went to school in Rhode Island and there were pineapples on 80% of the doors of the older homes in Newport and Providence since pineapples are a symbol of hospitality. According to the legend, it began with New England sea captains, who would spear pineapples on a fence post outside their homes after returning from the Caribbean islands, to let friends know of his safe return from sea. The pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drink, and listen to tales of his voyage.
Option 4 : Vintage Brass Whale $68 + s/h (most $$ but he's so cute and comes from Maine)
I'm not sure how I feel about whatever is coming out of his belly; but I kind of love him.....a lot. Although we are not near the water, so it might be odd to have a whale on our door?
Please tell me which is your favorite, because as it stands right now we might end up with 4 door knockers on our door, which is probably overkill.
