These impressive doors stand over 9' tall with heavily carved details and panels that add drama. At over 9' tall, the grand scale and sheer "presence" is difficult to grasp from photos alone. In person, the texture of the original green painted vintage finish against the carved accents all add to the grand scale of these remarkable doors. This rare set of extremely large doors is part of a remarkable collection currently in our inventory; see other door listings for additional options while available.
Wealthy farmers had large agricultural fields outside the villages but also had a large house in town which often represented the wealth of the family. In the South-West Hungary (Pecs), this particular set of "gates" were opened next to the street to allow a small horse drawn coach to pass through.The aged green and brown paint show extreme crackling and wear, while the doors themselves sit in a metal frame. As seen in photos, there is no glass in the upper panels.
Old vintage doors make and impressive and unique addition to modern homes, but almost always need to be adapted by a professional contractor/installer and are therefore sold in as is, unaltered condition as we found them in Europe. Constant wear and exposure to the elements have worn the wood for years, seen in cracks, separation, distresss, etc. Dimensions are given at widest points, understanding some old pieces are worn and uneven. Extensive wear and cracks are visible.
