35"x76"x2 Antique 1854 Front Entry Door w/2 Window & 4 Carved Panels. Antique, exterior door salvaged from an 1854 home in Sterling, PA.This was the side door of the home. Of solid Douglas fir or pine and is completely painted white.
It has 2 windows--one w/original, wavy glass & the other newer, replacement glass--with glass on top and panels below. Notice that the panels are raised on the exterior side and recessed (flat) panels--this is an uncommon feature. When most people hear "pine" they think of a cheap, weak, and soft wood.New pine hewn from 10 - 20 year old trees doesn't have the same insect-resistant, rot-resistant, or even fire-resistant qualities that old pine, hewn from trees hundreds of years old. Old pine is also much harder and stronger than young pine. Hardware : The door was mounted on an oak frame with thick, heavy-duty hinges. The last photo shows the hinges and also part of the frame with 4" long 1/4" thick square nails sticking out--amazing! Although we salvaged the hardware, the locksets did not fair well over the years and were too corroded to restore. The window with the replaced glass was widened and about 3/8 of the lock stile was shaved off to accommodate this window. This expansion also created gaps (1/4" & 3/8") between the 2 horizontal, cross rails and the lock stile. This would also include replacing the square replacement molding that someone placed at the top of the window when he/she. There was a break in the cross rail, near the lock housing on the interior side (see 2nd to last photo). It looks like the break was secured using only glue and whoever did it did not care about how good the repair looked. The door's height was unevenly cut by 1/4 at some point, most likely to compensate for an old warped floor or settling foundation. Condition : Considering it's age, the door is in good condition. It has plenty of blemishes and quirks as detailed above, however, it is structurally sound. The typical scrapes, scratches, small nail holes that you would expect to find on an old, used door. No warp, rot, or serious breaks.
Sanded, holes/cracks puttied, and paint or stain is applied, most of the blemishes would be removed. What remains will be covered by paint or stain, and only appear a character mark.
The glass is also intact and also in great condition with only subtle scratches. We could refinish, repaint, or partially or completely strip the doors to prepare any of them for you to repaint or refinish. Swing : The door is set up to swing inwardly towards the left.We could also modify this door to fit your opening or suite your needs. We could make a frame, trim or add to the height or width, replace glass with screen, reverse the swing, plug the hardware holes, etc. Door : 35 1/4 " x 75 7/8 " - 7 6 1/8 " x 1 7/8 ". Too tall, short, wide or narrow? Northeastern VA, MD, DC, DE, PA, NJ, NY, & New England : We deliver to these states every 2 - 3 weeks.
