- The Chihuahua DogKnocker™ was cast in solid bronze using the age-old art of sand casting. The sand mold for the casting process is used only once, giving each DogKnocker™ its individual character. The Chihuahua DogKnocker™ 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 DogKnocker™ carries the signature of artist Michael Healy.

- Each Door Knocker has been coated with a baked catalyzed polyurethane, similar to the clear top coat on an automobile. Occasionally washing your Door Knocker using a sponge with water and a mild soap will help to maintain its vibrant shine. Coating your Door Knocker with a paste wax will also greatly extend the life of the finish. Do not use a brass cleaner or an abrasive pad; this will damage the clear coating and the original polished finish.
