This is a fabulous eighteenth century example of a tabernacle door. The primitive carving and thick wood just bespeak history and time. It originates from Paris, from a private estate with a religious collection. It dates towards 1760.

The door is thick, measuring a solid one inch. The oak wood has taken on a handsome deep patina with the passing of time. The very high relief carving is simply beautiful, with Christ as the center, and radiating beams fanning out behind him. The detailing in Christ's robe has deep folds and delicate curves. A fancy carved ruffled ribbon scroll frames this center image.

There is an old iron lock face (the lock is not present). There is one iron latch remaining. The door has split at some point during it's history and there are very old iron pieces added for stability.

It measures: 12" tall x 7 1/2" wide. The carving is executed with a depth of 1" for the central figure and 1/4" for the ribbon. It is in very good antique condition for it's extreme age.

These early doors are extremely difficult to find in today's market. The very simplistic design and rich carved details give it a patina that just cannot be matched today. It is a perfect centerpiece for a devotional cabinet or table. It has both history and a sense of peace from it's long life.
