Important and rare door from an Haussmannian building in oakwood, late 19th century - Doors

These high oak doors were built in the late 19th century. In very good condition, the details were carefully executed : fine moldings discretely rhythm the structure, as well as the inlaid marquetry panels at the bottom of the doors. The sleek design of these doors highlights the fluid lines that animate the top of the composition, carved with foliage, flowers, and beautiful shells.
