Object Description

While doors are often overlooked as practical features of a property, this antique internal acid etched glass door is a decorative feature in itself. Suitable for interior use, it is artistically glazed with acid etched glass depicting a swirling pattern and flora including a poppy, iris and tulip. Old paint gives it a shabby chic finish, currently painted with a cream colour to one side and blue to the other.
Acid Etched Glass Doors
Often found in Victorian properties and listed buildings, acid etching – or French embossing – is a specialist, time-honoured technique developed in the mid 1800s. This skilled and labour-intensive process involves applying glass with a coating which is then etched with a decorative design and exposed to acid. This exposure corrodes the glass, creating variances of texture and tone. This results in a highly decorative and artistic finish that brings elegance and beauty to any setting.
