Featuring exceptional low-relief carvings paired with equally impressive ironwork, these French doors date to 1880. The asymmetrical windows, which are surrounded by very thick molding, are filled with iron bars terminating in pointed barbs and surmounted by a pair of concentric roundels around a quatrefoil set in the center of the slats. Both windows are topped by a large volute leaf, while the left door has a vertical mullion adorned with floral margents, a rosette, and a leaf cup finial.
A geometric baluster-form iron handle can be seen under the window, rising from a shaped entablature adorned with three tassels on each side. Beneath the handle is a tas de sable carvings encircled by several layers of molding. At the base of each door is a fluted kickplate set within a rectangular border. Most of the original hardware is still present, including large door straps and a locking bolt seen on the back of the doors. The right door has a charming knocker in the form of a fist gripping a ball. At over eight feet tall, our carved wood and iron doors would make fantastic interior doors to a wine room or salon.
CONDITION: Good antique condition, with minor age separations, nicks, and losses. Light traces of the original finish remain. Oxidation to the iron elements.
