When I purchased my first home one of the nicest housewarming gifts that I received was a monogrammed brass door knocker from my sister and I’ve loved door knockers ever since. In a previous post I shared my love of doors so for this post I want to feature a door accessory that’s not only functional but personalizes a door in a way that adds to the curb appeal of the entry way of a home.
This lion’s head knocker is a classic and traditional motif symbolic of home protection.
The Fleur-de-lis depicts a stylized lily flower. Traditionally a symbol of French royalty, it is said to signify perfection, light, and life.
For lovers of seafood how about a blue crab knocker?

As someone that has been dealing with a woodpecker for quite sometime I’m not sure how I feel about this antique bronze bird door knocker.
The mark of hospitality, the pineapple was often placed over the door in colonial times to invite friends to celebrate the safe return of a clipper ship.
For anyone that’s ever dealt with a battery operated doorbell a door knocker is a nice trouble free alternative that’s guaranteed to always work. But one thing that I’ve discovered about door knockers is that kids will never hesitate to use one but adults will stand at a doorbell with a dead battery almost indefinitely. LOL!
