Listing Detail Tabs

Straight out of the sands of the wild tribal Thar Desert region of Bikaner in Rajasthan India, these doors originally from the 1780's are the stuff of fables and legends!
I have been personally traveling through Rajasthan for over 40 years now and bringing furniture back to NZ, but have never come across a treasure like this before. Probably the only ones of their kind in the Southern Hemisphere makes them a collectors item, and a superb antique investment.
The sheer size and strength made them impenetrable to attack - and even elephant charges! The smaller doors created ease of quick access for a horseman being chased by opposing tribes or armies.
Made from a combination of teak,iron and brass at a towering height of nearly three and half metres tall, these stunning fortress doors protected the desert fort for over 2 centuries, and will now make a magnificent entrance way architectural statement piece with
the "Wow!!" factor.

Approx 230 years old.

3400 high x 2400 wide x 90 deep
