Country Life, 17 February 1934, illustrated.
The Country Life correspondant observes on his visit to the house at Ascot .. A new and charming use of metalwork is to be seen in the front door of wrought iron and plate glass. The delicate design of scrolled branches into which animal life is introduced -- birds, butterflies, a rabbit, a snail, a squirrel, a lizard -- is set within a great round-headed arch of four recessed 'orders'. This must be one of the most ambitious, as it is one of the most successful, of recent essays in the decorative use of metalwork. The only criticism that can be made is that the function of the door itself is almost lost sight of: one might be beguiled into remaining indefinitely on the doorstep, having forgotten to press the door-bell.
