"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort." Jane Austen
A seating arrangement around the dining room fireplace features a rare diminutive settle that was made around 1710 to 1720 and a Rhode Island Windsor chair. The rack above the fireplace is filled with choice pieces of the couple's extensive blue and white Canton collection. The rack itself was found with heavy old paint, which when removed, revealed the original bright bittersweet-colored paint.
