Item Description

VINTAGE BRASS “LINCOLN IMP” DOOR KNOCKER

This old imp door knocker which has been polished many times, was screwed onto our front door and moved from home to home.  It symbolised the triumph of good over evil.  

There are a number of stories surrounding this little imp but one story is that the imp was blown into the Lincoln Cathedral by strong winds and because he was one of the devil’s creatures he began causing mischief – dancing on the alter, tripping up the priest and annoying those in the Angel Choir until they could take no more and turned him into stone and he sits at the top of a column near the Angel Choir with a mischievous grin on his face to this day.
