Interior of a house in Berwick Street
Description
View of first-floor front room of house at 63 Berwick Street, Soho. This house first appears in ratebooks in 1724 when it was occupied by a timber merchant, Francis Jackman until 1755. The Duchess of Portland leased him the house in 1734-5 for a period of sixty-five years. From 1774 to 1803 the house was occupied by Samuel Wyatt, the builder and architect. Fluted Ionic columns are either side of the chimneybreast and flanked by two round-headed semi-circular niches. The ceiling is elaborately moulded and panelled with foliage, flower and scallop detail. In the niche to the left is a bust of William Shakespeare with china and crockery. A structural metal joist lies on its side in front. Building later demolished and replaced with an office block.
