His extensive ‘Grand Tour’ travels in Europe, Greece , Turkey and Egypt inspired his interest in antiquities as a source of designs for Regency period interiors, furniture and metalwork . He created “The Egyptian Room” in Duchess Street, London , where his designs displayed his belief in the importance of the ancient Egyptians to the origins of Western culture.
Highly decorative and academic object to enhance an interior scheme .
