. English ironwork of the XVIIth & XVIIIth centuries; an historical & analytical account of the development of exterior smithcraft. to details, but lighter (Plate xxxix). The scrolled panels donot pass below the simple lock-rail, and those of the narrow pilastersresemble them, though differing in design. The overthrowon a plain horizontal bar comprises two pyramids of scrolls withwater-leaves over the pilasters, and a large central pyramid, raisedover a horizontal panel, under a small semicircle enclosing twosmall and naturalesque branches of laurel. The scroUs and water-leaves once culminated in a flame-tuft finial, now replaced by a buttonand twist, like those over the pilasters. Pendant from the top-rail and erect over the lock-rail are balls on spikes with twistedpoints emerging from scrolls and leaves, and the dog-bars arearrow-headed with button and twisted points, like those frequentlyused by Robinson. Ormeley House, Lord Sudelys place on Ham Common, isscreened by a lofty gate, with semicircular top, rich pilastersand overthrow, and six panels of railing with scrolled pilasters.

The dog-bars, enrichedwith side scrolls, the fringe over the scrolled lock-rail, and thefinials, etc., are as at Dulwich College. The scroll-work of the hand-some pilasters reaches to the ground below high pyramid tops.The arching overthrow has a monogram, perhaps P.H., and awolfs head crest in a pyramidof scrolls, leaves and beaded tendrils.Scrolled brackets connect the pilasters with the railings, whichare on a dwarf wall (Fig. 36). A gate with railings much like that at Ormeley House is atBridesfoot House, Iver, 2^ miles south-west of Uxbridge. Thegate is formed of a central panel of scrolls, with tendrils and leaves, between plain bars, and the pilasters on either side are similarlyscrolled, with the typical dog-bars below. The overthrow islofty and
