A reclaimed Gothic, Victorian, painted oak door. The door has a nice design with Gothic arched detailing and vertical mouldings on the external face. The back face of the door is planked with ledges. The door was originally used for a pantry or somewhere that airflow was required and has four small ventilation holes at the base of each panel and larger holes at the top. The top holes and some of the base holes have been covered with gauze. The door is very heavy and of a good construction and could make an ideal garden gate / door. The door could however be stripped back to bare oak by purchaser and the door height could perhaps be cut to remove the ventilation holes to make a fantastic oak cottage door (however the Gothic detailing will be lost if the top holes are cut). Please contact us if you would like any advice about the possibility of re-sizing the door. The door is solid but has some signs of age and wear, as expected of reclaimed antiques. The back has numerous small holes and there are large stains and marks to the surface and the oak will need to be sanded. The front of the door has a paint finish but it has staining and chips and the door will need to be sanded and re-finished by purchaser to suit. The door has gauze patches covering air flow holes. There are some marks and gaps where door hardware has been removed. The thumb latch piece on the back face has no stay and it has surface rust. The bottom edge of the door has some damage and unevenness, perhaps from damp. Door hardware will need to be supplied by purchaser. Please see pictures for condition details. The door has very nice Gothic detailing and is a versatile item that would add period character to a home or garden.
