The Titanic artifact exhibit is coming to St. Paul next June.
In the article about it Jason T. just posted to the Titanic news section of E-T, it mentions this:

"Day said in addition to the artifacts – which this time will include a three-ton piece of the hull, sealskin slippers, a gentleman's top hat, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line and the D-Deck door, which served as the "front door" for first class passengers – there will be lots more information about the liner's collision with an iceberg and subsequent sinking."

There was a door from D-deck in the debries field?

Lucky for the salvors, then, that it did not get lost in the silt on the ocean floor when it fell.
Any pictures of it lying on the seabed next to the hull? Would love to see one. Would look pretty spectacular.

I think the silt on the sea bed is quite compact and wouldn't have got lost, or submerged.

I haven't seen any pictures of it on the sea bed, but I have seen it in an exhibit (the Rio in Las Vegas, about 2003 (?))
