Wrought-ironwork at Ham House (2)
Wrought-ironwork at Ham House (2)
These 'treble clefs' serve as buttresses, supporting the gate posts. Since the time of the Industrial Revolution (I believe) people have lost the habit of inquiring into how things are made. In this instance I notice the way the blacksmith has tapered off the 'tails' of his bar, something he must have done before going on to bend it into its fancy S-shape.
