I'm very happy with this item. It's exactly as described. It's a proper old-styled, large and dignified cat. It provides a subtle sense of horror without the much-overused horns or devlish features that would only mar a cat's looks. This big tomcat looks feral & serious about his territory. He won't welcome those unwanted door-to-door pests, but will be OK with your invited guests or official callers. This knocker will fit both traditional and special decor such as Gothic. It came with screws that would work on a solid wood door, but for a foam filled steel door which has quite thin surfaces, one may wish to use other fasteners. I will buy another soon as a gift. I suggest, on some doors, that one obtain a protective metal plate for the metal knocker to strike upon.
