Summer scenarios are now installed in the Great House!

In the Parlor fireplace is a reproduction Chinese export porcelain flowerpot with a fern. Asparagus ferns were often used in fireplace arrangements as they attracted flies (thus keeping them away from people). We’ve draped gauze over the looking glass in this room to depict how housekeeping practices prevented damage to the delicate gilding.
