The door includes a functional transom and both sets of original casings. The door, casings, and one side of the transom have a rich mahogany stained finish, highlighting the exquisite character of the wood, giving a rich, iridescent appearance. In addition, a lovely crazed patina has developed in the finish of the door.
DOOR: The door, measuring 32"(W) x 82"(H), features rows of horizontal beading along each rail and delicate incised ornamental carvings in and around each panel. A row of 4 beads runs across the mull cover of the painted side of the jamb, the opposing mull cover matches the ornamental molding of the casing.
JAMB: The opposing side of the transom and interior of the jamb are painted white. 2 parallel sets of double beads run along the sides and head of the jamb.
CASING: The casings each consist of 2 vertical 5 7/8"(W) trim pieces, a single matching header, 2 plinth blocks, and 2 rosettes. One set of rosettes is decorated with bullseye ornament, the other set is adorned with beautifully detailed carved foliage.
HARDWARE: The hardware includes brass Eastlake style keyhole covers, rosettes and hinges with ball finials. The knobset includes two brass Eastlake style knobs.
Condition: This door is in good condition with minor scuffs, scratches, and wear consistent with the age of the piece. Wood species of casing may vary, though most has been identified as pre-blight chestnut.
