Corinthian Georgian Fireplace
Profoundly impressive when arrayed full-scale, as with the portico of Stowe or the main staircases at Osterly Park and Culzean, the elaborate Corinthian order was rarely used in excess by the Adam brothers, and then only in grand settings.
It was successfully incorporated as a marble chimneypiece in the principal drawing room of Lansdowne House, where it echoed the painted and gilded pilasters around the walls. Not surprisingly, this became a popular precedent for many decorative timber chimneypieces in the more presitigious urban interiors of the late Georgian and Regency periods.
