There are Doors.

Echoes from Storyland. New York: McLoughlin Brothers (1880s)

So she was burnt with all her clothes
And arms, and hands, and eyes, and nose;
Till she had nothing more to lose.
Except her little scarlet shoes :
And nothing else but these were found,
Among her ashes on the ground.

The story is an English adaptation of Heinrich Hoffmann’s Die gar traurige Geschichte mit dem Feuerzeug in Der Struwwelpeter (1845)
