PART OF IT’S CHARM IS THERE IS EVIDENCE OF FORMER WORM THAT HAD BEEN TREATED IN THE PAST AND VARNISHED OVER MANY TIMES. SOILD AS WELL.

INSIDE DOOR FURNITURE IS MODERN. I’D SAY ALLOW TO CHANGE TO PERIOD.

 

IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A NEW DOOR THAT’S PERFECT THEN THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. THESE ARE FOR LOVERS OF OLDER DOORS.

THE DOOR WILL COME AS IS NEEDING PREPPING SANDING AND PAINT ON THE FACE OR STRIP PAINT AND OIL IT. LEAVE AS IS IF PREFERRED.
