About The Egyptian House

Celebration of Napoleonic success in Egypt


Of a style in vogue after Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt of 1798, The Egyptian house dates from about 1835. The front elevation is very similar to that of the former Egyptian Hall in Piccadilly, designed in 1812 by P. F. Robinson. Robinson or Foulston of Plymouth are the most likely candidates for its design, though there is no evidence to support the claim of either. It was built for John Lavin as a museum and geological repository.

Visitor Comments
No photograph or drawing can depict the astonishing and eccentric elevation of the Egyptian house. We much appreciated the furniture and delighted in the witty Egyptian motifs.
