Nagaiki Sudo, Antique Japanese Summer doors - This beautiful set of antique Japanese Sudo (簾戸) or summer doors are not to be confused with Shoji doors. Sudo doors are built with Japanese Hinoki wood combined with reed mats, often mounted in a decorative pattern. Sudo doors often feature decorative hand-carved designs at the bottom or center of the wooden panel. Some Sudo doors are fitted with ornamental smoked bamboo trellis.
Sudo doors are traditional Japanese sliding doors that replace the Shoji during summer. By using reed, the Sudo doors allow the air to flow through the house easily.
A set of Sudo doors can be easily mounted together with small copper hinges. This is an easy way to create an elegant folding room divider. Also, the Sudo can be mounted in a wooden frame and be used as sliding doors.
The Nagaiki (長い木) Sudo are characterized by their long wooden panels in the lower part of the screen. Nagaiki is Japanese for tall wood.
Some screens can be slightly damaged and show some wear and tear due to usage and old age.
