Notation lower right: this House is most beautifully decorated in colors. Carving some on blue some on brown back ground and carving itself varies blue red and yellows being used and touched up at the same time with Gold and Silver. Effect is stunning. Panels above windows are noted: Panels are painted----in reds and yellows.
In pencil along lower r. edge: #86 Sketch #1 a lockplate inscribed: Iron Back is blacked the leaves / however are of a steel color which / produces a splendid effect./ the leaves are not only cut out but modelled very/ strangly producing splendid lights and shades ; also: A projects at least 3/4" and is thinned down towards the leaves; also: A Sketch #2 inscribed: this little hinge has/ stunning effect the little/ leaves at the edges are/ modelled the least bit Sketch #3 insribed below sketch: Door Handle of 15th century
Notation: Note the carving in these panels is say 1/2" thick and the back is painted a deep blue which is very effective Notation right of right sketch: A splendid idea for effective carving is here used to these panels. Carving is -----tically perforated carved out of 1/2" stuff - then right back of it but not touching it is provided a ground which is painted blue the effect is remarkable
Sketch #1 inscribed: these little ribs are no more than a 16 of an inch wide and about '132" thick ; referring to Gothic Srecery at top: these leaves are seperate but very little also modelled beautifully Sketch #2 inscribed: thin iron ; also: this at the end is thin but near key hole becomes about 5/16" thick Sketch #3 inscribed: thin at end becomes thicker towards key hole ; to lower left: thin plate iron cut out and rivetted onto plate below cut out mark slightly modeled and tool marked. this is one of the most beautiful in design I think I have seen.
Notation on sketch #3: this little outer frame is raised about 3/4 inch ; also: very flatly modelled & tool marked, riveted to plate below Notation: these little stems are not merely cut out of same thickness metal as rest of hinge but become much higher gradually running down again to flatly modelled leaves
