These beautiful doors are part of a panelled room on display at the Royal Ontario Museum.
Part of a Canadiana Exhibit, the entire room was removed from an early 19th Century house in Quebec. The beautiful carvings and decorations are reported to be similar to those found in churches of the same age, but what makes this an anomaly is the fact that the room was not found in a manor house or even an urban townhouse – rather it was in a modest farmhouse. I can’t help but think: “hmmmm …there’s a story here….”
