Baker Came Knocking

Personalized Brass Door Knocker with Family Crest

Baker (1)

Added this door knocker with an unique history. It came in an original shipping box bearing a meter strip dated December 4, 1964, Boston, MA.

The meter number is 325470.  It was mailed at the third-class rate with postage of 22 cents to

Mrs Rodney Baker
Church St
Dalton New York 14836

If the datas are all correct, then the box and all it contained is as old as I am.


POST INTRO UPDATE : 17 March 2014

Bought this from a shop on Etsy on 25 Feb 2014. This is the 3rd door knocker added to my collection.  The door knocker arrived today at the Studio.

Mercury Came Knocking


Antique door knocker made by Kenrick and sons.
This large antique door knocker bears the bust of Mercury, the Roman god of financial gain and eloquence.
Supposedly, if you affix this to your front door, you’ll gain wealth and a gift for oratory.

Beautifully cast and a testament to the workmanship of Archbald Kenrick & Sons.
Kenrick and Sons are the quintessential manufacturer of quality late 19th century door knockers. Construction is solid cast iron and very heavy (1.2kg). The British registry lozenge found on the rear of the item dates it to 1864.

Measures 11″ by 2 5/8″ (28 cm x 6.7 cm)
