This exquisite hard wood Portuguese Baroque period room interior panelling, fire surrounds, over mantle, pediment, cane stand, arched double door with pilasters and mouldings was originally made as panelling for a room, thought to be in a merchant guild house in Porto, Portugal. Most of the panelling / boiserie is 18th Century, some from the 17th Century and a small amount made in the 19th Century, though some nails present possibly date prior to the 1800s, so parts could be even older. The wood used is Vinhatico, commonly found in South America, which is rot resistant and widely used as a structural timber.
