KNOCK KNOCK . . .

who's there?

door knockers
door knockers who?


door knockers...you know...
the things before there were doorbells...

they had their humble beginnings as
simple primitive rings nailed to a door



as time went on they became more ornate
and evolved into fanciful figures

they became door jewelry
or doorbling as it is known today ;)




devil


or angel




religous icons


and stylized animals
foxy ones

creepy snake ones


i love the unusual ones like this seahorse


not him...

oh...
and this dragonfly
