Plate 4 of a series of six plates representing portes cocheres and church doors. This design is characterized by a double door within a round arch and a play of ovals. First are the horizontal ovals at the top of the doors. They are surmounted by winged mascarons of children, and are framed by consoles and a garland. The second important ovals are placed vertically within a rectangular frame and decorated with vegetation. Lastly, the bottom part of the doors are octogonal in shape but are oblong as to resemble ovals.
Inscription: From left to right and top to bottom: 'Chez N. Bonnart, ruë S.t Iacques, à l'aigle, auec priuil'; '1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 / Echelle de huict pieds.'; 'Porte d'Eglise.'
