I find them fascinating historically as well as artistically. Over time many common designs have evolved. Some designs have turned out to be more popular than others. The urn style is among these. The ornaments and patterns have changed but the basic shape has remained. It has always interested me as to what made the classic urn style so well liked. The look does sort of resemble an ancient urn but in reality it does not really look much like one. In contemporary times people have little relation the urn with the exception of a burial container following cremation. What then makes the urn shape so popular for a door knocker? There are varying versions of the ascendance of the design. It is said that the classic urn shape has its origins in the Grecian or Victorian times.

These were also heavy enough to make a sound when they were tapped against the door. Door knockers made from cast iron have remained fashionable and must-have items because they were sturdy yet simple pieces. Door knockers fashioned out from pewter which is actually an alloy is often viewed as a popular ingredient for making decorative objects since these are generally easy to produce and also retain a significantly elegant feel and texture. Copper is also a good material for making door knockers. This material is famous for withstanding the natural elements because it does not rust.

Some classic door knocker designs are installed in such a manner that holes are drilled through the door and a hardware piece from the inside holds the knocker in its place. Some classic knocker designs do not need to have the holes drilled through the door as these are instead screwed into the surface of the doors exterior. Traditional door knockers serve both practical and decorative purposes however it best helps to distinguish your house from the neighbors. You need to know that its always the door that the visitor first sees therefore why not make your doors look classy and extra special through the installation of these lovely pieces?
