From the ancient Greece
The door knocker was invented in the ancient Greece. The Greeks were very cautious about who they welcomed into their homes, as they always had to be aware of potential enemies. The Greeks therefore found a piece of elongated iron that was loosely mounted on the front door. The guest could grab the iron and use it for banking on the door to report his arrival. The iron worked in this way as a kind of butler, who made the house's residents aware of new arrivals.
This became a precursor to the door knocker we know today. Today, the flashy metal ring has been rediscovered which we understand - it gives every door a stylish, personal and exclusive look.
