Possibly inspired by earlier Spanish doors, this studded farm door was hand-carved in France in the 1700’s. The 64 ½ inch tall door has iron nailheads of various sizes hammered into the front of the door, arranged in linear rows. Spanish furniture of the 16th and 17th centuries was greatly influenced by Moors immigrating to the Iberian Peninsula. The Moors were prohibited from depicting the human figure in décor, so they often used iron embellishments in their furniture and architecture. Our 18th century studded farm door is a highly versatile item. Although too small to be an entry door, it would make a fantastic wine cellar or built-in cupboard door. If hung horizontally, the door would make for an interesting headboard or simply as a piece of architectural art. It could also be repurposed into a top for a coffee table.
CONDITION: Wear commensurate to age and use with nicks and losses. Light age separations and rubs to some of the planks. One nailhead is missing. Old paint stains to the back of the door. Please see photos for details.
