Mahogany Eastlake style 6 panel door in a wooden jamb with functional transom and both sets of original casings. The door, measuring 32"(W) x 82 1/8"(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 on one side of the jamb, the opposing mull cover matches the ornamental molding of the casing. The door, casings, transom and interior of the jamb have a rich mahogany stained finish, highlighting the exquisite character of the wood as well as its iridescent appearance. 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 has bullseye ornament, the other set is adorned with beautifully detailed carved foliage. Equipped to the door are the original brass Eastlake style keyhole covers, rosettes, hinges with ball finials, and knobs. 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.
Salvaged from a circa 1885 Italianate style house in Barnesville, Ohio, this door, along with other items from the house, are featured on Season 10, Episode 5, of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
