Old wooden doors

Quick follow up, on a prior post about antique doors and antique door furniture. Was pokin around on Flickr again and noticed just how many great photos of old doors there ( along with a few good ideas on how to use them, including for sculpture).

    Many people would say doors such as these with such a heavy look and sturdy appearance would not be “welcoming.” My sentiment is that these doors are intriguing in their own right. Solid, unique, tasteful and stately.

    Nothing says welcome to me the same way as a gigantic antique door swinging open. Awesome examples.

    I have beautiful chinese doors similar to the ones pictured (two doors that open at the middle). Can you tell me how I might find out what they are worth.

    Thank you.
