This monumental pair of doors dates to the mid-19th century and once enclosed the inner courtyard of a grandQing-dynasty home in northern China. The courtyard doors are crafted of northern elm (yumu) and are complete with the original door frame comprised of thick wood beams. The door fronts are reinforced with studded iron bands and decorative iron plates with a foliate design. The doors close by a simple iron latch and open with two round door pulls secured by floral iron escutcheons. Beautifully aged from years of use, the doors have a rich patina and smooth texture that calls to be touched.
