The distressed antique interior door is in very good condition. This particular door is an architectural salvage piece from a 119 year-old home.The beautifully distressed and worn appearance on this antique interior door adds a tremendous amount of character to an already well-constructed wooden masterpiece. The door is very solid and very heavy. According to references for antique architectural salvage pieces, this door is believed to be made of cypress wood. While this door has paint on one side, the accompanying doors from the same house only have a medium to light stain.
Supposedly, it was more common around the turn of the 20th century to use cypress for entryway and interior doors - at least in certain areas. In addition, the rustic distressed black and/or white hardware along with a gorgeous black knob are included with the door.
Please note that the door is partially painted on one side. It appears that while part of the paint has been purposely removed, the full removal was never completed. Furthermore, the removal method did not include sanding and/or scraping as to damage the original finish. Most likely the paint that has been removed was already somewhat loose and simply needed peeling away.
The top of the door appears to have a little gap where the inner horizontal meets the outer vertical section. The gap appears to be from age as the back of the door does not have the same gap. Also, there is a little section on the wood-grain side that appears to have been pieced. Most likely, this is from the inner horizontal section originally having a crack that caused the piece to be fully removed before the larger section was added to the door.
Hence, the smaller piece was added after the larger section was installed. In addition, the black corbin plate surrounding the knob is broken - see the pictures. There are some other age and distress cracks on the door.However, they appear to be from age as they are not loose and the door is certainly not coming apart. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, rotten places, or repair marks on this gorgeous antique interior door. There are antique wear, age, and rub places on the door - mainly in the form of distress and wear on the exterior white/off-white color and the finish on the wood. There are some spots of discoloration on the door.
The door only had two hinges from which it was hung. The door side of those hinges are still intact on the door. Also, the hardware has a rustic distressed black or chippy-white appearance. There are no keys with the door.
The decorative possibilities for this distressed antique interior door are many. The condition and design of this beautiful antique interior door allows it to be used as a replacement for homes in an historical district. While this beautiful old door is certainly ready to be installed and used as an actual "door", this door can also be incorporated into more modern settings. The interior of the home would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous antique interior door for a laundry, bath, bedroom, and/or pantry area.
Also, shelves and/or hooks could be added to make a beautiful hall-tree. In addition, rollers could be added to create a sliding barn-style opening for either a closet or man-cave. The size and age of this door would make it a great replacement candidate for pocket-style interior doors.
The collector will appreciate this antique architectural salvage interior door for its very good condition, rich reddish brown woodgrain, and gorgeously distressed chippy-paint appearance. The distressed antique interior door weighs approximately 39 pounds. The distressed antique architectural salvage door measures approximately 76 13/16" tall x 30" wide x 1 7/16 thick. The distance on the edge of the door from the bottom of the bottom hinge to the top of the top hinge measures approximately 61.75. From the top of the door down to the top of the top hinge measures approximately 7 5/8 - to the edge of the hinge flange/seat - not the hinge pin hole.The hinge section that is mounted to the door measures 3 tall. The distance from the bottom of the door (on the door-knob edge) up to the bottom edge of the top part (not the deadbolt) that moves in and out when the handle is turned - that actually goes into the door casing - measures 33 1/8" or 30.5" to the bottom edge of the knob housing (the beginning of the black metal section). Please note that some customization may be needed to make sure this door fits correctly. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors.
Note on measurements: all measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing. Our measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned. The bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the bust by two.We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance. Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than i may be able to explain. Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity. The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While i do personally inspect each item, i can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, i try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks.This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
