The holes being small due to smaller diameter mounting hardware is easily fixed with a drill. If the holes are to far apart or to close this is another matter. The distance between the holes is called the Bolt Center or BC dimension. There is a reason for this seemingly odd name. You want the bolt to go through the center of the hole so this is the point that you would mark the door to be drilled. The problem you run into when replacing an existing door knocker is the holes are already drilled through your door. On the outside the holes can be covered by the knocker itself but on the inside they are exposed.

Urn door knockers can be found that are mounted to the door by one of two methods. One method uses screws that pass through the knocker and screw into the door. The other method uses bolts or other hardware that goes entirely through the door. Either method works well on wooden doors but the through the door method works best on other doors. It seems that I have answered my own question. The urn door knocker is popular for many good reasons the least of which is that they really look great on the entrance way to a home. The selection of a door knocker may be a bit more difficult than you imagine.

It is often mentioned that while a homes porch serves as focal gathering point for residents a traditional door knocker serves as the focal piece of the homes entryway. There has been a lot written about door knockers as these were devices that alerted the presence of an incoming visitor as well as for the eerie sound it makes during the middle of the night perfect for classic horror movie stuff. The earliest traditional door knockers were crafted from wrought iron and these consisted of a thick ring and a plate. This design was popular during the 17th and 18th centuries.
