This grand pair of antique French doors is from the 1870s, and was originally part of a majestic French chateau. This pair is monumental in size as well as charisma. This set begins with a modestly designed transom, which displays a slight arch at the crown and a more pronounced bow at the bottom, so as to compliment the attractive qualities of the doors without overshadowing their allure. The doors commences with a nicely arched top below which one will find an elaborately carved tee astragal that begins by having an appearance similar to that of a decorative corner brick or column topper. It displays a pointed and gadrooned crest, carved acanthus leaves, and decorative banding beneath. Along the length of the doors, the tee astragal displays carved leaves or petals, and finishes with a cylindrical base. Each of the doors has ornate carvings on both sides, which truly make this set a gem, and showcases lovely shaped windows. Both window panes are in excellent condition, and do not have cracks or breaks. Additionally, the doors feature the original hardware including hinges with silver-plated acorn finials. Theses doors are in very good antique condition. There is minor damage at the handle (see image). The jam and transom have been painted dark brown, which of course can be stripped and refinished to the buyers taste. The jamb has a bit of damage (see last image), but this could easily be cut down or replaced if desired. This set is 134 ¼ H with jamb, transom, and doors. The door with jamb only (sans transom) is 54 ½ wide 114 ¼ tall 3 ¾ thick. The DOORS ONLY are 48 wide 111 ½ tall 1 ¾ thick.
