Lion Head Arched Door: Master Hand Carved Solid Wood Entrance
ArtFactory.com builds the highest quality custom entrance doors available anywhere in the world. This, Bucharest, Romania inspired design was built at the request of a home owner in San Francisco. The hand carved lion head arched door is the type of design that will stand out, and making a lasting first impression. If you are looking for that special entrance door to be the heart and sole of your home, this is it. The lion head and wood scroll work are hand carved by our master carvers. These are detailed, high relief carvings, by the hands of one master carver, and certified as fine art quality.
These designs gives the door an elegance that a design inspired by a city once known as "Little Paris" deserves. All of our custom doors and furnishing are built under the supervision of award winning artist H.J Nick. This arched lion themed hand carved door is just one of the many historically inspired pieces that he, along with our master craftsmen have brought to life. Like all of our products, this door has been certified with the H.J. Nick signature, which assures that your product has been found to meet all, world class fine art specifications.
All Of Our Doors Include Fully Customizable Hand Forged Wrought Iron Hardware
Like all of our custom doors, this lion head arched door includes fully customizable hand forged hardware. All of our hardware products are custom made by master blacksmiths, right in our Scottsdale, Arizona factory. Each item is made from pure, solid wrought iron, and is hand hammered over a coal fired forge. We use pure wrought iron, because unlike cheap filler metals, wrought iron will not rust away and corrode with exposure to the elements. Wrought iron will stand up for centuries, build a patina, and only look better with age. To top it all off, at ArtFactory.com we expedite this natural process with our hand applied, iron oxide, advance patination process. The process infuses the patina to the metal at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and creates a finish that will look beautiful from day one, and for generations to come with little or no maintenance.
The lion head arched door as shown includes, on the exterior of the door; decorative strap hinges, historic, a historically inspired theme door knocker with back plate, and our beautiful twisted grapevine iron door pull. This door handle represents a grapevine with meticulously handmade leaves, and berries that wrap around from top to bottom. On the interior of the door, you will find one of our most popular handles, our historically inspired French style lever handle. Just like the door itself, all of our hardware products are certified to meet world class fine art standards.
Historical Inspiration For The Lion Head Arched Door: Bucharest, Romania
Bucharest is a city that has survived multiple rulers, alignments, natural disasters, and wars. The earliest written mention of the city was in 1459 in a document from Vlad Tepes III, better known as Vlad the Impaler. However, architectural findings show the city is older than that, and that people have been settled in the area since the Roman Empire or earlier. Because of the occupations in two world wars and then Communist rule after the Second World War, most of the historical architecture was destroyed. There has been a long period of rebuilding and restoration after the Romanian Revolution of 1989 and there are some beautiful buildings and artwork in Bucharest today.
ArtFactory.com is proud to bring a bit of the beauty of the architecture inspired this historic European city to America today. In fact, we can build literally any historically inspired design, custom made to fit your residential or commercial property. These are not reproduction quality imitations, or disposable, mass production items. Every item that is made in our world class, state-of-the-art factory is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of original fine art with future appreciable value in antiquity. H.J. Nick travels the world studying historic architecture in search of lost techniques that were used to create the great works of the old world. He then uses this knowledge to ensure that all of our historically inspired products are built to historically correct specifications, and using the same materials and techniques as the original inspirations from history. That is the ArtFactory.com difference. Call us today at 1-800-292-0008 to get a custom quote on the historically inspired door of your dreams.
