Pair of Tall 19th Century Chapel Doors from Belgium

Description

Hand-carved in Belgium, circa 1860, this 11 foot tall pair of doors (132.88 inches) were recently salvaged from a Belgian chapel.  They can be considered of the Gothic style, which is sometimes referred to as “pointed architecture”, because of the prevalence of pointed arches in buildings.

Each door is composed of six vertical planks constructed with mortise and tenon joinery. All planks have been adorned with iron pyramid protuberances, placed in a repeating pattern. The planks and iron retain their  white paint, now naturally weathered over the years, perfect for those who appreciate original condition.  At over 11 feet tall, these 19th century chapel doors will make quite an impression as entry doors.  Please see accompanying photos to see how the doors looked on the front of the chapel.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with wear commensurate to age and use, including minor losses, nicks, and buildup. Acceptable loss of paint and iron hardware. Partial set of hinges remain, as well as several locking bolts on the backside. A piece of molding is currently separated but can be reattached during installation.
