5 Favorites: Glamorous Ring Door Knockers

May 15, 2013

Door knockers have been around for centuries, created for the pragmatic purpose of announcing the arrival of guests and, later, to make a visual statement. Some were even designed to ward off evil spirits (unwanted guests?). We’ve rounded up five door knockers simple enough to make a glamorous statement on a 21st-century door.

Above: Rocky Mountain’s Round Door Knockers are available in four sizes and several finishes; for information and prices, see Rocky Mountain.

Above: The Baldwin Ring Style Solid Brass Door Knocker is available in several finishes; prices range from $67 to $84 at Build.

Above: The solid brass Ring Door Knocker is available in two sizes and a choices of four finishes. Currently on final sale for $25 to $52, depending on size, at Restoration Hardware.

Above: The hand-finished E3 Door Knocker from Brussels-based hardware company Vervloet is from the Contemporary line; contact E. R. Butler for pricing and ordering information.

Above: The Samuel Heath Ring Door Knocker measures 4.75 inches high and is available in seven finishes, including polished nickel (as shown). Prices start at $143.48 via Quality Bath; in the UK, a Samuel Heath Ring Door Knocker is from £95.96 to £184.52 depending on finish from TBKS Architectural Ironmongery.
