This door knocker was commissioned by a violin maker. The 'button' is made out of bronze while the backplate and treble clef were forged out of iron. I love it when I can combine bronze and iron - they just look so perfect together. The violin outline was chased into the iron plate with a series of hand chisels. The best part...I get to visit his violin-making shop next wk :-)
