Historical Origin Of Door Knockers
Door knockers are most popular in England than in any other country in the world to date. However, historically door knockers began in Ancient Greece as they were a sign of respect before entering a home or building. Spartans would shout at their arrival, the more sophisticated Athenians would use a knocker to announce their arrival. Door knockers were considered ?new technology? at that time in place of having a butler whose sole purpose was to only answer the door for visitors.
