ABOUT ANTIQUE DOORS
Antique doors are recovered from demolished or refurbished buildings, and typically date from 1850 to 1930. Some suppliers carry antique doors from as early as 1730. They can be used in refurbishment of old buildings, and to give character to newly constructed buildings.
Antique doors may be of simple wooden panel construction, or may be more elaborate in shape and design. Some of the most sought after doors carry leaded glazing, which may be stained into panels of color. The more elaborate antique doors are made from quality hardwoods including oak and mahogany.
