Preliminary design and working drawing for curtain cornices for the great dining room in the Etruscan style, presumed to have been executed, 1780-81 (2)
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 - including the curtain cornices. This design is identical to those in the wall elevation (Adam volume 14/139). There was no sign of this interior decorative scheme in the early twentieth century when the house was demolished.
