HOUSE DOOR 2
70" high x 29" wide x 4" deep (with lock)
This door has been vetted as authentic with signs of use and age.
This beautiful door has very minor damage and is enhanced with a working doorlock and a low raised relief of two lizards. We have added new photographs, taken indoors with more subtle light than the direct sunlight of the two first pictures. There is also a back view that shows three additional support bars and a side view that shows the slight warping of the door. It hangs nicely with the wire on the back. The doorlock and support bars are fastened on with old flat spikes that are bent over in back. The middle support bar's spikes go from back to front and show on the front (see details). The spike in the bottom left corner is in place but the part that was bent over is missing as is part of the wooden bar.
