The Blue Crab Door Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan, known for his Unique Door Knockers. Displaying this handsome sculpture will surely set any door apart while telling visitors of your special affinity to the bay.

The Blue Crab Door Knocker was a gift to our daughter for Christmas. She was thrilled with it and it now hangs on her front door. We were extremely pleased with the quality and looks of the door knocker and would recommend it to anyone.
We were very happy to receive this as a gift from my parents. The craftmanship and weight of the crab was very different and much better than my mother had anticipated when whe placed the order. We were able to attach it to the door very easily and received several compliments on the new doorknocker
One of the few things that I have NEVER ordered online prior to this order was a door knocker. However, we were so intrigued by the appearance of this Michael Healy rendition that we decided to order it. We were really impressed when we received it, not only by the size of the door knocker but by the quality of this piece of artwork for the front door. First, it is appropriate to indicate that this is a substantial door knocker. It is large, heavy and beautifully executed. As it happened, our handyman was here on another "mission" the day that we received it, so he installed it for us.
It would be an understatement to say that "This piece is stunning!" We had just had the front door painted Charleston Green. Because the door is quite dark, we opted to order the brass blue crab rather than the oiled bronze version that would have matched our existing front door hardware. We are glad that we made this decision. The oiled bronze against the Charleston Green would have made the crab invisible from the street. Instead, the crab shell matches the oiled bronze of our other hardware, but the brass claws and legs set the knocker off quite nicely against the Charleston Green door. Everyone who has seen it, including the mailman, asked where we were able to procure it. The quality of this piece is remarkable AND, it came in its own felt bag for storage or moving. Based on the quality of the door knocker that we received, I would recommend Michael Healy to anyone looking for external front door hardware. It is just wonderful.
We purchased this door knocker as a wedding present for friends who live in Maryland. We think this is an unusual wedding present and hope the couple is as impressed with this beautiful work of art as we are.
