Tudor Banister Restoration

February 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have a Tudor-style home (1922) with a wood-panel banister. Previous owners had painted over the wood, and as we were stripping the paint we discovered the interior panels are made of pressed paper board with wallpaper that had just been painted over. Has anyone seen this style banister before or know of what this may have originally looked like? I'd love to restore it to an authentic look.

After looking at this in our office, we came to the conclusion that these are most likely not original to the 1920's, as they didn't have press-board until the early 50's. While the banister itself is original, the original system was most likely either spindles or possibly even ironwork!
