Building Doorway Souvenir Replicas

When is a door not a door? When Its ajar. That’s the old riddle that makes me think of souvenir coin banks and other replicas which just represent a door. From a bronze doorway bookend to a ceramic Asian entryway, souvenirs sometimes just depict part of a structure.  Other examples include the front of the Worchester Federal Savings Bank made by Banthrico and an antique brass doorway of a Norwegian bank reproduced as a coin bank. Do you know of other souvenir doorway replicas?

What about Petra - the Monastery and Treasury? Also, Central Bank of Albany, NY and Brockton High School, MA bookends (or were they door stops?). And I have a set of Stanley Home Products Doorways in ceramic. Joe K.
