I found this antique door at a second hand shop and bought it for a mere R500,00. It has a lead and glass inlay and the flower in the middle is two dimensional, I have never seen anything like it, it must have been part of a cupboard, although it is very narrow. The owner of the shop said he thought it was made of American Bass wood as it was scratched and the wood underneath was very light and whether it was stained dark or changed as it aged, I wouldn't know. Once again my husband and I restored it and decided to stain it dark again and used mahogany to build a cupboard, exactly the same size as the door to make it useful. I now use it for a shoe cupboard. I wish someone could tell me more about it. It is really a nice piece of furniture now and will be handed down to our grand children!
