Magnificent door surround

Terrific door surround from a large mid Victorian house just outside Dundee, built by the owner of the local foundry there. Its pine and very intricately carved, its just a shame that its so hard to display now its down (we tried to take pics on site but it was just too dark and dusty). When I removed it, inside the header piece I found an old chisel which the cabinet maker of 170 years ago must have lost while making it. It had been sharpened so often there was only a couple of inches of blade left on it. Poor bloke, and it would have been a bloke, he probably went to his grave not knowing where it had gone.
at the actual opening size is 90 inches by 48 ( I may have to check that as it seems very wide ) and the overall max sizes are 115 tall by 83 wide.
