A lion’s head door knocker makes for a regal entrance. According to some research I have found, in Ancient Roman times during Caesar’s reign, many military and political leaders owned lions’ head door knockers at their homes to represent their political & social power.
By medieval times, these historic door knockers became popular in England, representing dignity and royalty. In the 18th century, Great Britain’s prime minister also sported the lion’s head doorknocker at his home.
