Oct. 9 - The 2nd floor original door with etched glass has been removed from this
auction due to that no adequate replacement door is available. Doors
with correct height & width are available, but the thickness of
replacement door can't quickly be found. This 1800's door is thinner
than current doors. If anyone interested in this door can provide a door
or give information about obtaining a door of correct thickness, this
antique Fogli Hotel door may be For Sale in the future, so call Auctions
by Diana Cook to get on the door interest list. The replacement door
can be old or modern, it just has to properly fit by height, width &
thickness. We apologize for removal of this one item.
