Design for a chimneypiece, 1767, possibly executed (1)
See notes to Adam volumes 3/107, 8/97 and 11/199. This chimneypiece design does not correspond with that shown in the wall elevations for the library (Adam volume 50/72), but as the library wing was the only addition made by Adam at 18 Hanover Square it must be intended for inclusion therein. This design is possibly an unfinished alternative. The pencil underdrawing shows a broader mantel and frieze, and more elaborate stiles may have been left undrawn here.
