  • The scallop is a sign used along the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage walk that has been trekked by thousands of travellers over the centuries. Pilgrims could find welcome refuge by looking for the scallop sign affixed or painted on a doorway.

    I had this shape cast from a scallop shell I had amongst my library of objects, waiting for its reincarnation into a door knocker so that guests & friends may feel welcome stepping up to your doorstep.

    Measurements: 11.5cm high x 13.5cm wide x 4cm deep.

    Finish: aged brass plated. Comes with screws.

    Styling with Hardware: Pilgrim Knocker

    CARE INSTRUCTIONS

    Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.

    If the product is made from brass, it will patina & age over time. This ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.

    If the product is blackened steel, Linseed oil or Penetrol can be used to keep it rich & dark in colour. This will also prevent & remove any rust which may build up over time in coastal or wet environments. Dot a rag with Penetrol & massage into the steel for 3-5 minutes & leave to dry. We recommend a few coats over the life of the product.

    If the product is crafted with raw leather, it is designed to age & darken over time. We love when the story of the user & their environment is imprinted on our products. Oxalic acid can be used to wipe down raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
