Model for Bentley Priory, Middlesex, Entrance Vestibule, (designed by Sir John Soane), 1798, painted wood
Museum number: M1367
Scale 1.5ft to 1in. In 1798 Soane designed a Greek Doric vestibule to be added to the north front of Bentley Priory for the Hon. John James Hamilton, later Marquess of Abercorn. This comparatively crude model conveys the principle features and sources of light in the robust interior. The absence of a base enables the vaulted ceiling to be examined from beneath the model.
