A hallmark of Chinese architecture, tall door panels such as these were used in provincial courtyard homes to easily open up a room to the outdoors. Designed with solid wood panels instead of lattice windows, these door panels were likely installed facing the street, used to protect the home rather than provide decoration. The doors were originally linked by hinges set in opposite directions, allowing the doors to fold upon themselves as they open. Instead of the elaborate carvings often found on Qing-dynasty doors, these simple door panels are decorated only by round brass pulls and a weathered layer of red-brown lacquer.

Dimensions listed describe an individual panel. Overall dimensions of the set of four panels is 81"W x 98"H.
