Pair of 18th Century Oak Entry Doors from Troyes, France

These beautiful, early 18th century doors were salvaged from a building in the town of Troyes, France, which is a lovely Medieval town 2 hours southeast of Paris.  They were originally made as entry doors, so the door maker used thick and sturdy French oak boards. The hand carving on the upper portion of the doors is exquisite.  There are stylized shells flowing into C-Scrolls and C-Scrolls flowing into leaves and flowers.  The shaped moldings are doubled around the indented and raised panels, and the panels beneath the intricate carvings, have the same type of moldings. Toward the bottom of the doors is a large rectangular area, consisting of 3 vertical boards on each door.  The backs have four plain indented and raised panels that have been stained and sealed.  They have sliding latches at the top and bottom of the doors.

18th century French entry doors such as these are quite rare. With the proper preparations, they can once again be used as entry doors. They would also work as interior doors, or as a decorative architectural element.

CONDITION: Strong and sturdy condition. Oak is naturally weathered, no hardware. Old age splits and losses and seen in photos.
