A door knocker creates the first impression a visitor has of your home, setting the theme and tone of everything that follows. By selecting something unusual, you can personalize your front door and really make it your own.
Among the superstitions of bygone times which still linger in the British countryside, the ideas regarding pixies are the most interesting and romantic. It is to Dartmoor one must go to hear fully of the fantastic tricks and antics of the fairy and fairy-ike creatures. Sometimes these merry little elves have been seen dancing in a circle on the sides of the hills, as a peasant has made his way homeward after night-fall; but as such sights have generally been witnessed when the beholder has been returning from a merry-making, a sheep-shearing feast, perhaps, or a Christmas revel. By their presence, pixies bring blessings to those who are fond of them.
The Dartmoor Pixie Door Knocker is a solid bronze articulation of mythical folklore. Handcrafted using the age-old art of foundry casting, the vintage knocker measures 5-inches in height by 2-inches in width, a promise of wonderful blessings to all who enter.
