Thursday Doors Local

Just a few interesting doors close to home for this week’s entry. They all have leaded lights, a feature of private homes from 1860 to 1930 according to Wikipedia. They look a bit more gothic than Frank Lloyd Wright.

Fine black door with leaded sections of the fanlight and brass trimmings.
An interesting door in maroon, with leaded windows. I like the snake-dragon supports holding up the shelter over the door.
Recessed door painted “duck egg blue”, again with leaded lights.

The last two doors are interesting. I’m not sure I’ve seen sidelights not going all the way down to the ground before. The entrance at Fleetwood is beautiful. I’m not sure I’d like walking in alongside snake dragons, but to each his own. The leaded glass adds a very nice touch to these doors.
