One thing that I found in Switzerland was that there was no limit to the imagination as to what a door or doorway was to look like.

Roger…

These doors, door openings, and entrances are magnificent! Every picture is worth a thousand words. It truly must be wonderful to see it in person and these are only the doors. Amazing design and quality craftsmanship.
Thanks for sharing!

I had not really thought much about doors and mantle design. This was neat. Thanks.

Nice photo’s.

I like the details on the aluminum one’s too, Karson! Add to that, the shinny doors…what’s not to like.

Roger:

GREAT pics !

Thanks so much for sharing.

I’ve been to Switzerland a few times. My first love is from there, and lives just across the French border, now. I think it’s like a postcard, everywhere you look.

Another place I visited (Honeymoon, actually) ... known for its doors … is San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico

Great architecture. GREAT doors !

Thanks again. Brings back fond memories … of the country … and … of Margrit ;-)

Hey Lee, you are the expert here on LJ when it comes to veneers and veneering. Did they use thin veneers back in 1000 AD. or were they more like thick veneers, meaning 1/2” or thicker?

By the way the shinny doors caught my eye also. LOL!

oooooooooh.
Beautiful and what a selection too.
Who would have thought that there would be such a great and unusual variety of doors and frames. Here a door is a door and mostly all the same at that. Maybe with a little variation!
I really must get overseas again.
So you collect doors????? :-)

Thanks Roger, And you had already taken it and didn’t have to run outside to take one of your house.

Thanks.

Yes The answer to the veneers would be enlightening.
