Quick Overview

The Pomeranian Dog Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan known for his Unique Door Knockers. Michael has always loved dogs and was interested to learn that the Pomeranian is a descendent of sled dogs in Iceland. Through much careful breeding, the breed's size has decreased considerably, but it still retains the luscious coat of its ancestors. The average weight of the Pomeranian is between three and seven pounds. The Pomeranian Dog Knocker is cast in solid bronze, and weighs nearly as much as the dog itself. It was handcrafted using the age-old art of foundry casting. During this process, molten bronze is heated to over 2200ºF and then carefully poured into a handmade sand mold. This mold is used only once, giving your Dog Knocker its individual character. The Pomeranian Dog Knocker was treated with a dark patina, then hand polished and coated with a clear lacquer to protect its original finish. In order to confirm authenticity and quality craftsmanship, your Dog Knocker carries the signature of artist Michael Healy.

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.
