1920/30s art deco oval stained glass front door. R262. Delivery option
212.8 x 90.2 x 4.5cm. Condition: there are some splits in the wood. Not unusual for old doors but see all photos. I also travel the country regularly so might be able to personally deliver. They have not done mileage but may have 100 years on the clock.Some sellers whether trade (like me) or private are asking hundreds of pounds. If a listing gives only a fleeting reference to it being restored ask exactly which parts has been restored! Look very closely at the photos. If poor quality photos ask for better. Some old panels look amazing when photographed in direct sunlight but the silhouette will hide the hide the condition of the lead and wood. While you should consider all parts of the door I suggest the traditionally made leaded light panel(s) is the most expensive aspect to restore/replace if there is a problem. Even if the glass is not damaged the lead structure might not be rigid after decades of slamming. Are all lead joins intact? Look for even small cracks within the lead joins and bowing of the whole panel. Another consideration is how exposed the lead has been to the elements. If it is grey/white then it is oxidising. This can happen on both sides as condensation can oxidise the internal side. None of the above faults necessarily mean that the whole panel should be remade. If I think the panel should be remade I will say so at the start of my listing. If any of my doors contain rot I will state this on the listing.
