THORPE HOUSE SET THORPE HOUSE
Windsor 1720 (split pair of bookends)
A well-proportioned brick built late English Renaissance house similar to many built in this period. The style was readily exported to the new colonies of America. Many houses in Virginia and on the east coast emulate this design. The classic pilasters separate three bays giving the building authority and elegance. It shows the influence of the baroque architect Sir Christopher Wren who built St Paul's Cathedral and also designed many of the churches in London. The American multi-layered colonial style church originated from Wren's designs.
