Quick Overview

The Boxer Dog Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan known for his Unique Door Knockers. Michael has always enjoyed the company of dogs. His parents bought him his first dog, Champ, when he was ten years old. As a Boxer, Champ was a member of a unique lineage. The Boxer's most ancient ancestor, the Molossian dog, was used by the ancient Assyrians as a war dog as far back as 2000 BC. After centuries of breeding, the modern Boxer was used as a German police dog. When it was introduced in the United States in the early 20th century, the Boxer became an American household favorite, known for its intelligence and strength. Champ certainly exemplified these noble qualities and was Michael's favorite childhood companion.

Product Overview

All Michael Healy Door Knockers and Doorbell Ringers are cast in Solid Brass, Bronze, or Nickel Silver. Occasionally, a combination of these metals is used to add highlights and depth to a particular design.

Michael's original Door Knockers were cast in solid brass and bronze. In response to the expansion of both antique and contemporary finishes used in door hardware, the line was recently expanded to include Oiled Bronze and Nickel Silver designs.

Each Door Knocker receives a baked polyurethane coating or a statuary lacquer before leaving production. Similar to the protective finish used on cars, these coatings provide a shield against the elements. All of the alloys used by Michael Healy are ideal for outdoor use, allowing you to base your selection on personal preference alone.
