Or, you could bid on this and win!

 

NEWSFLASH!!!

The Church Door has been identified and awarded to the researcher.   Read on and learn: 

I'm happy to say I've seen the door pictured in item 120 in person! It is located in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany, and used to be a "dungeon" but is really more of a medieval jail. I've attached a screenshot of a result from a google search I did once I recognized the name "Rothenburg Gr." at the bottom left of the lithograph. Unfortunately, I can't read what is written on the right side - maybe a signature of the artist?

Here's the website explaining what is currently housed behind the beautiful door: https://www.rothenburg-tourismus.de/en/discover/the-highlights-of-rothenburg-ob-der-tauber-top10-sights/historical-vault/
