Carved Wooden Six Panel Exterior Door with Double Red Leaded Lites
This beautiful carved wooden door is an exterior door with a six panel design in which the panels increase in size from top to bottom. The top two panels are lites (windows in place of a solid door panel) fitted with red leaded glass. The middle two panels are carved in a bead-like pattern. The third and bottom-most panels are divided into two pieces. The top piece of the panel includes a carving of a person, and the bottom piece of the panel is a square grouping of four pyramids. The door has been painted brown, as seen by the noticeable damage near the door's bottom rail. This damage and chipping paint provides an excellent example why many public buildings opt for doors with kick plates. Of course, this particular door, because of its ornamental carvings, would not be suitable for a kick plate. There is no noticeable hardware on this door, suggesting that it may be an inward-opening door.
