Wow, what a rare find! Beautiful, robust doors salvaged from an old, apartment building in Brooklyn, NY. The building was built around the turn of the previous century and these doors were original to the building's construction. Each door has a long recessed panel with a small recessed panel above it.
I'm unable to identify the wood without removing a good amount of the paint, but it must be a hard wood because my fingernail can't dent it. From what I could see, the wood looks like cherry, but please don't hold me to that. However, I am certain that these doors are solid wood, without veneers.
Hardware: All of the doors are not equipped with any hardware. However, we have a good selection of period hardware in our eBay store, and tons more in our physical store.
* If you would like any of the hardware holes patched with a solid block of wood, email us for a quote.
Quirks & Considerations: All of the doors have been unevenly cut, most likely to compensate for a warped floor or settling foundation. We could even the height or width, as well as increase/decrease the height/width to fit your opening--email us for a quote.
The original lock housings (holes for locksets) of Doors#1 & 2 were plugged with solid wood and new holes were made, and there appears to be a patch or repair at the top of the lower panel of Door#4. If you are planning on repainting the doors, this is not an issue; however, since we didn't plug or patch them and they are currently painted, we can't tell how the plugged/patched areas would look like if stained.
Condition: Except for Door#4 which has a broken top panel, all of the doors are in good shape and only have the typical nicks and scratches, which are to be expected for a door this old. Most of the blemishes will disappear after sanding, prior to refinishing or repainting. There is nothing serious like breaks, cracks, rot, or warp.
Refinish/Repaint: We could refinish, repaint, or partially or completely strip the doors to prepare it for you to repaint or refinish. Email us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.
Modification: Do you want to turn 2 of these into a pair? Do you want to replace one or both panels with glass, screen/mesh, or something else? Do you actually need narrow doors with only 1 panel? We could modify the doors to fit your opening or suite your needs. We could make a frame, trim or add to the height or width, reverse the swing, plug the hardware holes, etc. Email us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.

The door is just as described. I paid extra for sanding, hinges, door handle hardware, framing, and delivery. Unfortunately, I asked twice for a left swing door by message, asked again by phone... but in the end I was given a right swing door which will not work in my kitchen. I was told "you didn't pay to have it switched." I would have done so if I had known, and he had plenty of opportunity to do so in the 35+ messages back and forth between us. So now I have invested $600 in a door I cannot use and it is up to my husband to chisel out the door and frame to make it work. So my advice is go ahead and buy his stuff but have someone local do the modifications for you...
