Working drawing for the frieze for the great dining room, presumed to have been executed, 29 August 1780 (1)
The great dining room was created in 1781. There is photographic proof that Adam's ceiling was executed in this room, and therefore, presumably so too were the designs for the walls, along with this frieze. There was no sign of this interior decorative scheme in the early twentieth century when the house was demolished.
The design shown in this working drawing is a large-scale version of that shown in the wall elevations for the room (Adam volumes 14/138-14/140).
