Fine Art Quality Custom Blacksmith Hand Forged Hardware

Just like all of our doors and custom home furnishings, all of our hardware is certified fine art quality. Not only is each piece built individually by the hands of one master metalsmith, but every item that leaves our factory is built under the supervision of world renowned artist H.J. Nick. Every product is certified with the H.J. Nick signature. This ensures that your product is a one-of-a-kind work of art that is of investment quality, and will hold future value in antiquity.

To top it all off, all of our hardware is advance patinated using our proprietary iron oxide process. In this process, the patina finish is hand applied, and then heat infused at over 1000 degrees to bond to the molecules of the metal. In this example, the lion head iron door knocker has been finished with a silver colored patina. We have dozens of colors to choose from, and can also match to any color sample. This type of finishing process assures that your hardware products will look beautiful from day one, and for years to come with little or no maintenance.

Lion Head Door Knocker Historical Significance

Lion head iron door knockers have been used for centuries as a decorative and functional element for front doors. The use of lion heads in architecture and design dates back to ancient times, where they were often used to convey power, strength, and nobility. During the medieval period, lion heads became a popular decorative element in Gothic architecture, particularly on doorways and entrances to castles and cathedrals. The lion was often seen as a symbol of the power, and might, of the monarchy, and the aristocracy. Its image was used to intimidate, and awe those who visited these structures.

In the Renaissance period, lion head motifs continued to be popular in European art and design, particularly in Italy. Lion heads were often used in sculptures, paintings, and other decorative arts as a symbol of strength, bravery, and leadership. During the 18th and 19th centuries, lion head door knockers became a popular architectural detail in Europe, and North America. They were often made of iron or brass and were prized for their durability and ability to withstand the elements. In the 20th century, the popularity of lion head door knockers continued to grow, and they became a common feature on many types of homes, from grand estates, to more modest dwellings. Today, lion head door knockers can still be found on many homes and buildings around the world, and they continue to be valued for their beauty, symbolism, and functional use. The history of the lion head door knocker can be traced back to ancient times, and over the centuries, they have evolved into one of the most popular decorative, and functional hardware elements for front doors. Even in modern times, they continue to be prized for their beauty and symbolism.
