Plank and Batten Double Doors with In-laid Wooden Detail and Brass Hardware
This beautiful pair of wooden plank and batten doors form a true arch together. Plank and batten doors are unframed doors, meaning the planks are assembled and the battens are placed horizontally and sometimes diagonally to hold the planks together. In each door, one plank is twice the width of the others. Within this plank, a wooden wavy line in a deeper colored wood has been laid in. Usually the battens can be seen on the inside of the door. However, the weather face of the door most likely has the battens because the plank side pictured here has brass security bolts near the bottom of each door to secure the door to the floor and prevent it from opening. At one time, each door had a brass handle. However, the handle on the left door has been snapped off and only a small part of the door handle and a bore hole remain.
