Curatorial note

Scale 4ft to 1in. This model for a projected country house for Thomas Swinnerton reflects the final stage reached during a period of design extending from Dec. 1809 to Nov. 1816 (see drawing 46/7). Like the model for Tyringham it can be dismantled horizontally to show the interior arrangements for each floor in turn.
