Drawing room cornice

Drawing room cornice
The cornice is the molding that connects the wall and the ceiling. The drawing room cornice is the most elaborate of the house. It has dentals, small wooden blocks set closely in a row, and medillions, curved brackets that are scaled-down versions of the ones on the exterior of the house. This design followed classical models from Greece and Rome and allowed owner, David Stone, to demonstrate his taste and learning. The accompanying video describes the importance of the drawing room and details the object. Date approximated.
