It seemed that every gate and door had a sunburst pattern in one variation or another during the 1950's. Perhaps it was a new dawn after the Second World War.
This example, obviously a customised special, at the entrance to a West Norfolk cottage is pretty basic but interesting none the less. We like the cast metal gate posts too. Lovely little details that you don't normally notice.
Most people would say why worry about them but the Two Terriers love these little details and we're on the lookout for more rising sun and sunburst gates and doors.
I think we might have painted the sun bright orange, although in those days maybe that would have been bit too Japanese.
