Description: Item # 5588. Door knocker Massive Bronze Door Knocker. Attributed to a design by Alessandro Vittoria. Probably cast by Giordano Angelo in the 19th century. Alessandro Vittoria (1525–1608) was an Italian Mannerist sculptor of the Venetian School, one of the main representatives of the Venetian classical style, rivaling Giambologna as the foremost sculptors of the late 16th century in Italy. Provenance: Palazzo Pisani, Venice, Italy. Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, Vienna, Austria. Edward L. Jellinek, Buffalo, New York. [Rosenberg & Stiebel, New York, NY (?-1953) sold]; to Fogg Art Museum, 1953. In 1953 the firm of Rosenberg & Stiebel obtain a pair of similar door knockers. One was sold to the Fogg Museum in 1953 and one was sold also in 1953 to the a direct descendent of the owner of whom we obtained our example. We believe that our example is a Victorian copy and that the Fogg purchase the period 16th century example. This example is unmarked. Size: 11” wide x 16” tall x 5” deep; with the door holder intact the knocker is 18” tall. This piece is very heavy (22 lbs) and is cast in several sections and bolted together. The condition is excellent and the patina is untouched. Examples in The Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Fogg Art Museum, The British Museum, the Walters Art Museum, The National Trust Museum, The Princeton University Art Museum, and the Boymans-van Beuningen Museum and other museums around the world.
