Pair of Antique French Doors w/30 Windows. Antique double doors salvaged from an old home in Northeastern PA. The doors have solid Douglas Fir cores covered by 1/16 thick heartpine veneers, and. Are stained and finished not.
Please note that heartpine is the non-living, core of a pine tree, and not the soft, outer, living sap-wood. Since it takes 30 years for a pine tree just to develop just 1 of heart stock it is rarer, harder, more durable, more insect & rot resistant, less susceptible to warping and twisting, and is much more valuable than the cheap, pine lumber that is commonly found at most hardware stores. The pair has an impressive arrangement of 30, true-divided windows. 28 windows have their original glass, 1 is missing, and one was replaced with a slightly smaller piece of Plexiglass (see last photo). Hardware : The doors are not equipped with any hardware.The height of one of the doors was uneven. Ly cut by 1/4 at some point, most likely to compensate for an old warped floor or settling foundation.
Condition : It's obvious from the photos that the doors have a bunch of veneer issues. However, the majority of these issues are on the bottom half, of one side, of one door and most importantly, the core wooden structure of both doors is in excellent condition. All of the minor veneer issues could be fixed with glue and clamps. If you want to completely stain and finish the doors, the one side of the door missing the big amount of veneer will need to be re-veneered.Ideally, the customer who buys this pair will want to completely paint them or paint them on the side missing a lot of veneer and stain the other side.
