Very Large Pair of Antique Mahogany Panelled Doors
A pair of very large antique Victorian doors made from solid mahogany. They were originally the front doors to a bank in Smithfields, London, till about 30 years ago. They are panelled with large mouldings, and brass fittings. The height is around 290cm and they are heavy! Two people can carry one door, with difficulty (I can attest to that, with experience..). That will be reflected in the delivery price; sorry! You'll need to help the courier too. The condition is good; structurally very solid, despite some slight opening of several joints due to shrinkage. These do not affect the structure at all (see pics). The fronts have been lightly rubbed down but would benefit from a bit more; they're very clean though. The backs have patches of old varnish on them which might be a bit harder to rub off but do-able. There are a few chips and dents or cut outs for missing hardware as might be expected with something that was in constant use for so long. Three of the four brass handles have the pull missing or damaged. Did I mention they are magnificent? Well, they are...

Ask for a delivery quote: our courier comes to London most weeks and gets to most parts of England at least once a month. If you're within 20-30 miles of Hastings we can do it ourselves; sometimes it might even be free..
