Mansion House – Chippendale Cornice

One of two cornices made for the Egyptian Hall in London’s Mansion House. Measuring about 15 feet wide, it’s based on a Thomas Chippendale design from 1762 for a Venetian window.

All hand carved and water gilded.

The Mansion House is a rare surviving Georgian town palace in London. With its magnificent interiors and elegant furniture, the Mansion House provides the Lord Mayor of the City of London with living, working and entertainment space.
