Egyptian door hinge, British Museum

I've never been to see the Egyptian door hinge in the British Museum.

Wondering why door hinges would be placed on exhibit in a museum? This door hinge is inscribed with the names of the God's wives of Amun. These two names were considered to be wives to the god and members of the royal Kushite family. The unique door hinge is placed in the time period of the 25th-26th Dynasty, 760-650 BC.

That I'd like to see.
