Impressive Large Ruby Red Flashed Glass Oak Door, c. 1800s

Out of stock



This large oak door is very unique in that it holds four gorgeous figural panels of ruby to clear flashed glass. Hand cut by a master using the wheel cut method on flashed glass, when a gather of hot glass is dipped into a crucible containing hot glass of the second color and then re-fired in a muffle kiln to harden, which enables the artists to cut intricate designs. This particular door reflects the Aesthetic movement, featuring prominent use of nature, and incorporating flowers, birds, and leaves. This door is set up as a pocket door now, and showcases an Eastlake lock and pulls; however, as it would have been typical at the time for the owner of such a door to wish to “show off” the flashed glass by placing it at the entrance of the home, this door is so large and of fine thickness that it could easily be converted to an exterior door to suit the buyer’s needs. This door is in excellent condition, and is stained on one side and painted white on the opposite. The door is 58”W 111” T and 2 ½” D.
