Beautiful pair of large heavy solid cedar doors made their way to the shop today. Originally from Brisbane's Criterion Hotel that was knocked down just like it's more famous rival The Bellevue. Note the beautiful handles and etched glass. The high quality of the doors reflects the 1880's boom in Queensland when lots of buildings went up along George street. Brisbane never again would see that quality due to the 1890's bust. A rare chance to to be the custodian of a piece of our city's history. $4995
