Designs and working drawing for chimney-pieces, 1796 (4)
The white marble chimney-piece in the drawing room (shown in drawing 12) is still in situ (photograph in SM information file dated 1996).
Drawings 10 to 15 are among the nearly 200 designs for chimney-pieces for public and private buildings housed in drawer 81 at the Soane Museum. Soane often re-used or adapted existing designs and this was particuarly the case with chimney-pieces. It would have been convenient for the office to have many of the drawings for chimney-pieces filed in a single location.
