The Dragonfly Doorbell Ringer was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan. He enjoyed studying the acrobatic flight of dragonflies while fly fishing in the pond near his cottage. On one August morning, Michael found a large dragonfly perched by the front door. The dragonfly eventually flew away but left behind a wonderful idea for one of Michael Healy's doorbell ringer designs. It was hand-crafted in Rhode Island using the age old art of foundry casting. During the foundry casting process it is heated to over 2000ºF then carefully poured into a hand made sand mold. This mold is used only once, giving the Doorbell Ringer its individual character.
Arrived much more quickly than advertised. It came with no installation instructions. Luckily we're putting in a new front door and our contractor said he would deal with it. It's a lovely design and should set off our new black door beautifully.
It is beautiful and I love it. The only thing I could find wrong is that I don't see the different shades from copper to brass. I only see brass. But that is something I can live with as it is still beautiful and I still love it.
This was ordered for my husband for Christmas. Saw this on display at Yankee Candle in Williamsburg VA, but couldn't not find a clerk to wait on us, do not know if they even had any in stock. My husband has installed and is very pleased with the Dragonfly.
I love this doorbell. very good workmanship, looks great on my new doorway. it did not have instructions enclosed, but my contractor was able to figure it out. it does not hang on an angle as shown, it hangs sideways. i did not get the door knocker with it, thought it would be overkill. love it and would recommend it!!!
