Colonial House – Part 17

Colonial House

A server at the far end of the dining room is accurate to the period, as is the gate-leg table at rest (folded) under the large mirror on the exterior wall. Above the server are the May and December lithographs from the 12 months of flower prints. These two prints represent the birth months of Patricia and Larry, respectively. Swags on the windows, along with the Venetian blinds are appropriate for the period. Fabric had to be imported from England and was very expensive so window hangings were used only in important rooms. A set of 10 matching side chairs and 2 arm chairs, all with black leather seats, are arranged around the large table in the center of the room with some of the chairs setting along the walls. This large mirror with beveled edges and an elaborate gold leaf frame was used mostly to reflect light back into the room. Adjacent sconces helps light the room.
