Design for a mirror frame for an unknown room, 1764 (1)
It is not known if this mirror frame was executed.
Harris has compared this design to that for the mirror frame for the drawing room at Bowood, which makes use of the same motifs. Moreover, Harris notes that in her diary Lady Shelburne recorded her admiration for the interior of 18 Grosvenor Square: 'saw Lord Thanet's House which Mr Adam's is decorating & has made very pretty'. Owing to the similarity between this design and the Bowood drawing room mirror frame, it is likely that Adam was aware of Lady Shelburne's comments.
