Ancient Artifact Review 10 : Antique Malay Carved Wooden Doors ( 1911 CE)


These are 2 pairs of beautifully carved wooden doors. I purchased these doors from a friend in Kuala Lumpur.
However in this posting I posted only the first pair of the door. The other door will be posted on a separate entry.
 These doors were 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.
The first set of door has its each leaf dimension of 76 x 17.5 inches whereas the other set of 76 x 16.5 inches.
