Pair Vintage Window Shutters with mortise and tenon and tongue groove joints with struck metal pulls.

This is an incredible pair of shutters which I believe were once used for basement windows. It appears from the slight taper at the top of each window that these set in channels (top and bottom) and lifted in place by means of the pulls/hardware. So, lift, set, drop in place.

These were custom made for each window as they are incised with numbers (see 4th picture).

The wood is in good vintage condition, one of the slats is missing on one of the shutters, but could be replaced. The shellac is just about worn off over the years, but there is a wonderful patina to the wood.

The back is covered with a muslin type fabric, perhaps gauze, to keep the bugs out. Ingenious. That is not in good condition. There wasn't enough space for pictures of the back, so if you are interested, I'd be happy to email them to you. If using them in your home, you might consider removing the gauze.

All in all, a great pair of shutters for your home, cottage or cabin if you want to hang them vertically. If horizontal is the look you're after, they would be excellent over a door, or window, or vertically on the side of a window. Lots of options and a real conversation grabber (and great just as wall art.

Measurements: Each is just slightly different. 15-1/2" x 41-1/2"

Feel free to ask questions. These are being sold only as a pair. No International requests, please.

Thanks for stopping by.
