A stunning, reclaimed, antique painted pine and cast iron glazed door. The substantial and well made door has a fantastic design with a mortised and tenoned pine frame and a cast iron grill in the centre with long octagonal glazed panels and small diamond or triangle glazed sections. The cast iron was believed to be made by the Finchampstead foundry and the door dates to C.1850. The door has brass hinges and a drip bar at the base. Please note the door is currently 86.1cm wide but the door could be cut to 79cm by purchaser, if required.
We believe the door has the original 4mm untoughened glass. PURCHASER MUST ENSURE THE GLASS MEETS CURRENT SAFETY STANDARDS and either change the glass if it does not or we can offer to apply a safety film to the panes that require it, for an extra charge, so it meets safety standards. Please contact us for details and a quote for safety film. The door is suited for internal or external use. The door has a lock and key but handles will need to be supplied by purchaser.
The door is in good antique condition with some signs of age and wear, as expected. There are some small patches of surface rust and some small knocks and chips, as expected. There are some small patches of paint over the smaller glass sections and some scratches and marks to the paint. The door has some holes and marks from hardware removal. The brass hinges have some tarnish and some paint residue. The door height may need slight levelling. Please see pictures for condition details. The door is a beautiful example of Victorian craftsmanship and would make an interesting and rare feature in a home.
Please note: We have two doors of the same design, that can be set up as a pair, also available for sale. Please see our listing reference DP0407 for details.
