  1. The designs of the doors and what they did to frame it, are excellent workmanship! Am glad you went there to share it !
    I think, Dan means with Dutch door that the door is in two part, and one can open the top part separately from the bottom part (that’s the popular name for it here in the USA). Have a great weekend . Traudel! At my Open House (really an art show) this weekend my “refreshments” will be an extended Kaffee Klatch:)

      1. I only caught it because it takes years living in another country before you catch the expressions everyone here knows – so don’t feel bad:)

  2. I’ll love the collection (but that goes without saying). I had to check because of the Dutch doors, too. They are not common in the south of Germany and are just called “stable doors” even if they are in a house (probably because the idea was to prevent animals from escaping) but one finds them mostly in horse boxes. But in the north of Germany they are common (well, it’s closed to the Netherlands) and have a rather quaint name: Klöntüren. Klönen is a word from the Northern dialects meaning chatting. So, these are chatting doors. 🙂
