Original Antique Shekhawati Door
Shekawati is a region in Rajastan, famous for it's highly skilled craftsmen who still produce these stunning pieces. Shekhawati is one of the richest artistic and architectural regions of India.
This particular Door came from the 18th Century Havali of the Minister for the Exchequer Rajastan, which is still in the same family today, being run as a Hotel by his Grandsons. It was salvaged from the last renovation at the Hotel.
Wood carving is a highly developed art form in Shekhawati, which is famous for its intricately carved wooden doors, windows and furniture. Doors, frames and shutters are carved with geometrical and floral patterns and plated with brass.
Most towns had a Garh (fort) as the nucleus, with the town itself enclosed by fortification walls and huge gateways.
Designs of doors vary across towns. The main doors of forts and of some of the havelis are massive, with a small wicket gate. These ornate Doors were strengthened with metal plates, nails and spikes for security. The door leading to the inner court of a haveli is usually the most beautiful and intricately carved.
Thankfully these carpentry skills have survived, and these doors are still being restored or reproduced today by highly skilled, traditional Rajastani Carpenters.
