We have included a short history of these 1930's Period Doors and a nod to the "Art Deco" style doors at the foot of this category but you may also want to sneak a peek at our piece on this period in time and just some of the details for 1930's Front Doors.
A traditional home from the years 1920 -1940 would have had heavy solid oak doors, pitch pine or douglas fir timber doors in what has become known as a 1930's style, history has chosen to ignore the fact that this style of 1930's door was used as early as 1920.
Often a more affordable choice was waxing or staining a cheaper timber to try and attain the required quality look that these period doors offered. Doors were generally painted and would have been in dark colours of brown, green or black with edges and panels picked out in contrasting colours.
Traditional style 1930's art deco doors would have used either Bakelite or cast iron door handles and would have had a rim lock fitted, a rim lock is a lock fitted to the face of the door on one side of the room with a basic handle set and a keyhole on the opposite side from the lock, although rim locks offered very basic security it gave the homeowner a degree of comfort in an era when most home owners never locked their external doors.
Three elongated lower panels would often be two thirds of the way up with a single top panel, more often than not the panels would be flat and in a plywood with a veneer made of the same main timber...oak or pine as described above.
