What is a door knocker?
is an element applied to the door that serves to knock on it with the aim of attracting the attention of those inside the building. It is a much more elegant accessory than its successor, the electric bell. Not for nothing in fairy tales, if a character has to knock on a door, he usually knocks (and doesn't ring the bell).
It is also commonly called clapper, knocker , knocker, knocker, knocker or hammer
The purpose of the door leaf is not only to warn of the arrival of visitors, but also to embellish the doors on which it is placed. It was also once considered a magical item - read on if you want to know more.
A brief history of the door knocker
In a distant time when human beings for the first time felt the need to protect themselves and their possessions inside a house, not only did the need to close, but also the need to notice who wanted to signal his presence outside the home (and thus allow him to enter). This has led to the invention of a special instrument perfected over time and called a beater.
The door is a very old piece of furniture. In fact, variously decorated door knockers were already in use since the times of the ancient Romans. Today, examples of different types are preserved in archaeological museums.
Once upon a time, the magical power was even attributed to warding off bad influences
that could damage the house and its guests. Precisely for this reason, most of the depictions of the doors show threatening human faces or ferocious animals.
