Working drawings for the drawing and eating rooms, 5-8 February 1790 (4)

The designs for the two rooms are plain with ornament confined to the cornices. The drawing room has a segmental-headed, three-part window as well as a semicircular-headed window of which there are two in the eating room. A design for the drawing room chimney-piece shown on drawing 9 was presumably to be repeated in the other room. The carefully shaded details for cornices (drawing 12) show a ribbon moulding for the eating room and a more elaborate series of ancones (consoles, brackets, modillions) for the drawing room cornice.
