A monumental pair of Chinese temple doors were hewn of solid elm hardwood with hand wrought iron mounts. Giant ring pulls have temple dog holders with movable eyes and tongues.
The worn finish has great antique patina on these doors from the "Qing" dynasty in the later 1800's. Engraved designs in the iron depict traditional figures, there are losses to the round mount at lower left, see photos.
There are original reinforcements dovetailed across the back side. There are mounting pegs on the top and bottom of the outside edges, these went into sockets in the wall and served as hinges. They can be cut off if desired.
Measurements are 32" wide or 64" total, 5" thick and 110 1/2" tall including pegs, 105" tall without.
