The simple or elegant door knockers would somehow transform the entire appearance of their doorways and entryways. There are a lot of different designs and styles of knockers that are available on line in which you could choose from. Just like any other home furnitures the purpose of chrome door knockers is not only to relay to the people inside that someone is coming but at the same time to enhance the appearance of your doorway and provide additional attraction. The structural design of the knockers is made up of two parts. The first part was fixed to the door and the other part which was attached by a hinge and used to strike a plate fitted to the door or to the door itself which help the occupants to know that someone is outside.

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.

The classic urn design has many areas that are conducive to ornamentation. Of course one of the most popular is the plain polished finish with no ornamentation at all. Most urn designs are perfectly suited for engraving. The common shape offers an excellent engraving area centering the hinge location of the clapper. This area is usually a pleasant rectangular shape that will hold a name or address nicely. Many manufacturers also design an engraving area onto the clapper. This shape can be a square or an oval depending on the manufacturer. The clapper area usually looks good whether it is engraved or not.
