Treat your guests like royalty with our cast iron sculptural Lion and the Snake door knocker. A reproduction of the French emblems-a lion representing Louis Philippe I, the last King of the French, who ascended the throne in 1830 under the sign of Leo, and the snake depicted as the many-headed serpent-symbolizing enlightenment and the approval of the people and political change. To celebrate, the image was included in many statues and artistic creations. The artist of Toscano's version of this elegant door knocker sculpted the lion with a thick mane framing his proud countenance in tufts and curls. Sand-cast in foundry iron using an age old four step method, our two piece Lion and Snake cast iron door knocker with strike plate will grace any door, office or make a thoughtful housewarming gift. Hardware not included.
