Plus is this the most menacing face carved into a piece of furniture ever?

    His obituary in The Times (London) concluded A popular and considerate landlord, he devoted himself to the management of his estate, and was very proud of his cherry trees, which were the largest of their kind in the country. As a shot, he excelled, and he was a first-class billiard player.

    At the NIAH entry for Tourin House, there is a picture of the front door, which looks like the door in this photo.
