Ancient Artifact Review 51 : Antique Balik Pulau Malay Carved Wooden Doors ( 1911 CE)

This another pair of beautifully carved wooden doors. I purchased this door from a friend in Kuala Lumpur. This door was from a mansion in Balik Pulau. On one panel, there was an Arabic inscription of year 1331 H which is equivalent to 1911 CE. However my friend didnt purchase the panel since it was none of his interest at that time and even before selling these doors last July.
This door is beautifully carved in floral motives. 

This set of door has a dimension  of 76 x 16.5 inches. Check the other door on
