I've bought lots of these (both singles and pairs) over the years, and most of them we've sold again. I've got a few now that I'm going to use. My plan is to build them into cabinetry renovation in kitchen, and also to have a 4" depth box frame backing made for one that can be wall-mounted as a cabinet in bathroom, mirror back and lined with glass shelves, to use as as upscale medicine cabinet. Might recess the cabinet part into the wall instead. You'll surely come up with great decorator ideas of your own. But in fact, these hang on a wall beautifully just as the fine art and sculpture they are. Large antique Victorian era French Black Forest style hand carved 20 7/8" x 19.5" cabinet or furniture door panel PAIR, now fabulous wall hanging decorative plaques with ornate sinuous scrolling vines or tendrils & foliage carvings and wonderful visual & decorative appeal! Wouldn't these look lovely with custom made gilt wood frames, or simply hung as is really! We've offered many old Black Forest hunt themed wall plaques over the years, these more French in style. Not complete cabinet or furniture doors, these are the inner panels that would have been framed in the thicker, heavier oak or walnut with the hinges and lock attached. Each here with the same or image of carved leaves & vines on a solid wood panel. Fabulous detail, wouldn't they look superb framed in a rich gilt gesso on wood and displayed. They'd also make great additions to a custom piece of furniture or cabinetry OR, simply hung & displayed as they are.
A wonderful large pair, don't miss them! Ready-to-hang or you might want to build into your cabinetry; use as a door for a wall cabinet for medicine chest use in a bathroom; or put in a frame to display as the work of art they truly are. Fabulous for a wall ornament in a Country French kitchen or den. Actually, it would even look great in any setting where fine architectural salvage pieces might add to the warmth and aesthetic, even modern. This panel dates 19th century, c. 1830-80s. There is space around the borders that do not have the wood stain, from being in the outer door mounts. See pictures for all measurements.
