Arrowsmith, Henry William / The house decorator and painter's guide; containing a series of designs for decorating apartments, suited to the various styles of architecture
Plate XXIII-XXIV ["Elizabethan style"], pp. 48-[Plate XXIV] ff.
48 rations of the several apartments are almost uninjured; and even the articles of use and ornament remain in the places where they were left by their owners. So favourable an opportunity of correcting the opinions that had been formed of Roman domestic architecture could scarcely have been believed possible; nor is it to be anticipated that time will ever again be so long delayed in his work of change and destruction by one of the most awful and almost instantaneous agents of ruin. Plate XXIII. The design in this Plate is the elevation of a room in the Elizabethan style. The work should be executed in wainscot; or, if this should be found too expensive, the lower parts may be carved, and the other portions of the design finished in plaster, and grained in imitation of the wood. The bay-window introduced in this design can scarcely be called one of the characteristics of the style, but is peculiarly appropriate. The panels between the piers may be filled with looking-glass. Plate XXIV. D E T A I L S. Figure 1. Is an enlarged elevation of the cornice and entablature. Figure 2. Is the profile of the bracket on the facia. Figure 3.
