Description

It was a challenge to create a functional dog door knocker design that portrayed the intelligent, gentle disposition of a greyhound whilst, at the same time, highlighting its powerful sleek form. After many experimental castings, we settled on a resting pose. Turned slightly to the left, our greyhound’s head rests on outstretched front legs whilst its muscular hind legs are bent underneath its rump. The subtle curve in its body shows the beautiful contours of a greyhound’s back and neck. We were careful to keep the intricate detail in the front paws and the delicate structure of the ribs. The characteristic greyhound ears are resting in a neutral position.

Although slender and graceful, this dog door knocker weighs almost 1.2 kg and has a resounding knock. The long thin body lends itself perfectly to the functionality of a door knocker. It rests on a hidden knocker stop and is the perfect shape to hold and knock. It is a statement piece and is perfect if you’re looking for a quirky alternative to a traditional Georgian door knocker (or just because you love greyhounds!)
