A fantastic, very rare, oak internal door, reclaimed from a house that was constructed in 1609. The front face of the door is in the traditional style for the period, with 8 panels, that are raised and fielded but have now worn somewhat. The rails in-between the panels have simple carved detailing. The oak has a rich dark colour that highlights the doors interesting characteristics from age. There is also some evidence of old paint in the grain. The back face of the door has had a panel attached, with four recessed panels with moulded edges. This face of the door is also very old and was applied some time ago, with the design in the Georgian style. This face has been painted and has a cracked and stained surface. The door has an old lock, without a key, and has old paint and surface rust.
The door is extremely old and has an abundance of character and signs of age. There have been some patch repairs and there are some holes from hardware removal. The door has flaking paint and rust to the hinges and old lock. The panels have buckling and splitting. There are some splits and cracks in the door, some knocks and light damage. A moulding on the painted side of the door has a knock and there is a hole where the door has sustained some damage. Please see pictures for details.
The door is a very rare and would make a very interesting decorative panel or could be fitted into a period home (with the advice of a carpenter). The door is a fantastic item that would be a real showpiece for the home.
