Unfinished design and finished drawing for mirror frames for the drawing room, 1765, Adam volume 20/16 executed with alterations (2)
The overmantel mirror frame shown in Adam volume 20/16 was executed and remains in situ, albeit without the candelabra shown at the bottom of the frame. The mirror frame shown in Adam volume 20/15 does not survive at Syon, and it is not known if it was executed.
In the drawing room there are also two window pier glasses containing French glass, and with gilt frames designed by Adam, although there are no surviving drawings for these frames. These pier glasses are identical to a design made for Sir Laurence Dundas in 1765 for 19 Arlington Street. The design was rejected by Dundas in favour of another, similar design (SM Adam volume 20/11).
