A pair of tall, reclaimed, Victorian stripped pine shutters. The shutters comprise of 4 leaves, 2 on each side, that are hinged so one folds back behind the other when opened. Each leaf has three recessed panels, with beading around them on the front face. The back of the shutters have a thick metal stay bar and a receiver for the bar to fit into. The shutters have large decorative hinges but please note that the hinges, stay bar and receiver have surface rust. The shutters have a rebated edge where the inner edges meet, to allow them to sit nicely together.
The shutters have some damp mould from storage. Purchaser can sand the mould once dry and finish the shutters to suit. The shutters are solid and useable with some signs of age and some damage, as expected of reclaimed antiques. There are some marks and chips to the pine. One top edge tapers in slightly where it had a break (see picture 12). The base of one of the rebated edges has some damage. The shutters have had some peg joints and some filler applied. One panel has a crack and it has been glued. The glue is visible. The shutters have some further surface splits and cracks. There are some notches left by wood knots. The shutter heights may need slight levelling. Please see pictures for condition details. The shutters have a very nice period appearance and are of a good size, ideal for a home project.
