You are in the Dining Room Album. The wallcovering on these walls is a labor intensive printing of a 14 color handscreened Brunschwig & Fils linen fabric. When produced it retailed at more than $200 a yard. First produced in the early 1900's, with additional printing through the last century, it adds a richness that only fabrics provide. The printing process is shown in the last photos in this album. The antique carved mantle with its matching mirror are one of four mantles on the first floor. There is a gas insert to warm the guests who are dining. Arched leaded glass window set perfectly matches the group in the parlor directly opposite.
