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
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
