A beautiful set of four French interior doors, both sides of these architecturals were hand-carved in the 1800s. All four doors have identical carvings, with an asymmetrical upper panel over a rectilinear lower panel. The moldings are thick and exquisite, with the unbalanced panels being topped by a crescent-shaped attenuated leaf with a lily flower. Original hardware is still present, including gudgeons at the top and bottom of each door and shapely brass locks on the front side. The back sides still have the top latches with roundel knobs and one of the bottom latches is present. Four frames are also included, each with pintles that are inserted into the side gudgeons. Our set of four carved oak double sided doors would make fantastic interior doors to a bedroom, wine room, or office.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition, with minor nicks, losses, and age separations. Traces of old fills and repairs. Although the hardware is antique (most likely original), they have been set more recently with modern screws. The original frames are included, complete with the pintle section of the hinge (see second photo). One pair is missing the door handle, while the other pair is missing a floor latch.
