Scagliola

Spencer House, London.

One of the most important houses in London belonging to the Spencer family, faithfully restored in 1987.

James 'Athenian' Stuart, then newly returned from Greece, superseded Vardy as Lord Spencer's architect in 1758. As a result, the House became the first example in London of the application of accurate Greek detail to interior decoration, making it one of the pioneer examples of neo-classical architecture.
