4 door panels available
Circa 1904, New York
Elegant Polished iron door panels,
previously used as the hallway elevator lift doors at the St. Regis
Hotel in New York City.

1904 by the Astor family.
The Beau Arts beauty flourished with
the vision of Colonel John Jacob Astor IV,
whose life was
tragically taken when the Titanic sank in 1912. Caroline, "Lady"
Astor took over the hotel and created a magical hotel that has
carried on for over 100 years.
