Belton House - Part 3 6/7

The Chinese Bedroom at Belton House, Lincolnshire, UK. The decoration of this room dates from c.1840, though the wallpaper is C18th. The hand painted Chinese wallpaper depicts a continuous scene of a garden party. The cornice, dado and other joinery are painted to imitate bamboo. The bed dates from c.1840 and has a gilded and scrolled canopy and glazed chintz hangings.

 

I will be unable to view and comment until later in the weekend. I hope to catch up with you all in due course.

not my kind of bed, but fluffy it looks indeed
It was a very ornate time wasn't it?
