John Kenrick: designs for mirror frames, 1783; it is not known if these designs were executed (4)

1783
John Kenrick is unknown, but Harris has suggested that he may have been a member of the Kenrick family of Alwalton, Huntingdon. Moreover, he may have been Kohn Kenrick (1735-99), who served as MP for Bletchingley in 1780-90. What is clear is that in 1783 Kenrick commissioned Adam to make designs for mirror frames, but it is not known if these were executed.
