The Neoclassical Dining Room in Charleston

Record #:
The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina conducted a study of 17th, 18th, and early 19th century Charleston estate inventories. Analysis revealed that Neoclassical dining rooms were not designed solely for the purpose of eating. The upper-class used dining rooms to display the wealth of glassware and silver to impress friends and business acquaintances of the owner.
