|entry door St. Francis Seraphicus Church, Prague .|
I posted a larger collection of these door pictures at flickr. Here are some highlights:
|beautiful amber painted door of the newly restored palace of the Rožmberkové (house of Rosenberg) Prague|
|strapwork ornament carved into an old door, Staré Město|
|Detail of one of three black iron doors with polished iron ornaments, Italian Embassy, Prague|
I don't know anything about the specific tradition of ironwork in this region, but it does seem to have a distinctive style reminiscent of celtic designs. Which makes sense since during the *cough* Iron Age, the Celts originated from this area.

|splendid entry door and handle of the Svatý Mikuláš (St. Nicholas) church, Tyn Square|
|a lovely old door in the Vladislav Hall, Prague Castle|
|a very simple inlaid door with fantastic hinges|
|a beautiful marquetry door in Prague Castle|
|a small utilitarian door in a hallway- at once substantial and elegant.|
|ornate hinge: St Thomas Church, Prague|
I am resisting the urge to pound a thousand upholstery tacks into my front door. However, a faux marquetry door might not be out of the question.
