A fine bronze Egyptian Revival door knocker in the form of the head of a Pharaoh or Sphinx, dating to the early 19th century. Enthusiasm for decorative pieces in the style of ancient Egypt followed Nelson's defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of the Nile in 1798. During the campaign, Nelson was accompanied by a scientific expedition whose works were published between 1809 and 1826. This lead to a huge interest in all things Egyptian which manifested itself in art and design. This piece dates to this period.

It is a sturdy piece and is well cast. It has an attractive aged patina with evidence of some verdigris. It needs a striking plate but is otherwise complete and in good condition.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
