A unique set of three interior doors from Italy, hand-carved in oak around 1850, these doors have been painted a grayish-blue color adorned with golden motifs. Each door has similar geometric and foliate motifs on two rectangular panels with recessed molding. The top panel is aligned in a vertical fashion, with a lion mascaron at the top that is surrounded by curled leaves. Beneath the lion’s face is a beautiful Roman-style foliate arabesque flanked by a pair of roundels with vine-like tendrils.
The second panel beneath is much smaller and has a horizontal orientation. In the center is a vase-form embellishment, encircled by sinuous foliage. All three doors have retained the gudgeons of pintle hinges on the sides, while two of the doors still have a lock/latch system. Our set of three Italian interior doors could be installed with traditional hinges, but they could also be installed with a modern track system, allowing the doors to slide independently of each other. Painted antique doors are always in demand, as they can add an element of vibrancy and intrigue to any existing interior.
*DOORS CAN BE SOLD INDIVIDUALLY*
CONDITION: Good, strong antique condition, with minor losses, scratches, and age separations, all commensurate to age and use. Some of the hardware still remains, but one door does not have any locks or latches.
