Knock Knock

I love a front door that says 'wow!"

An over-sized door knocker is a great way to accomplish this.


It shows me that the homeowners have personality.

It also makes me want to go inside and snoop around. In a nice way of course. I have been searching for that wow for my own front door and came across this...

Over-sized vintage brass or bronze elephant door knocker. Isn't he the best? Now I have to decide if I am going to keep him or send him back to the booth. Somebody put me out of my misery and buy him. I have been so bad lately keeping everything I find. I try to buy only the things that I truly love, but then it is hard to give them up..even for $$$. He is 9 1/2" long 6" across, all for $70 plus S & H.

  1. I love door knockers! I have a lion at our Westchester home and a clamshell at our Hamptons home. Love the elephant one! Sure you want to sell it...it is amazing!!

  2. Do not sell him. Keep him, slap him on your front door and sell the camel trays if that makes you feel better. I love elephants. Of course, I have a weakness for camels too...

  3. I am stunned you are even thinking of selling him! You said yourself you have been searching for that special thing- perhaps this is not it? But if you love it, keep it! I have a feeling you are going to regret it if you don't!
    I have the same problem. I want to keep all the accessories I have chosen for a client's room this week. I have no room for the pieces but I just LOVE them!

  4. I am so in love with that second image, I have that one in my files. I have a full French door for my entry so a beautiful knocker won't work, but I can see why you are so enamored with these beauties, Kathysue

  5. I always wanted a wife with big knockers, but this isn't exactly what I had in mind.

  6. I love a good door-knocker too and you're right - they do let you in on a bit of the homeowner's personality! Love the elephant - I say keep him!
