Exploring the Historical Treasures of the Parlour/Dining Room
As you step into the parlour or dining room, you are instantly transported back in time to an era where the dining room was reserved for special occasions and guests only, thus making it an infrequently used space.
You won't want to miss the intricately handcrafted tea cozy, boasting an impressive 196 beads per square inch, as well as the sugar bowl with matching spoons and salt cells that were used before the invention of the shaker. The "chandelier" in the room is actually an operating room light from the years when the space served as a hospital emergency room.
Keep an eye out for the many clocks adorning the walls, including one that serves as a souvenir from World War 1 (1914-1918) and another that was formerly owned by the Setrum family since the turn of the 20th century. Don't forget to read the article about the mirror on the sideboard for an added layer of historical context.
