|Mindolton Manor dominates my dining room.|
Back in 2009 I promised to show you pictures of the interior, but I never got around to doing a photo shoot - until today.
The house is still as I received it. The exterior is beautiful and finished. I love the colours the original owner used. Most areas of the interior need some type of finishing, but I furnished it anyway.
I will show you the house room by room over the next several posts.
I have furnished the house exclusively with Lynnfield furniture (not including accessories).
|The maid has just finished making up the master bedroom.|
I love the round table complete with curved working drawers all the way around.
Most of the furniture was sold through Block House Inc., and its name changed several times over the years.
It went from Lynnfield to H.M. Miniatures to Andi Imports to Sonia Messer. (Sonia Messer miniatures were made in South America.)
The Dressing table also has inlay and fully functioning drawers. These items were sold by Block house in the mid 1940s.
|The little footstool is not Lynnfield. It is a petit point brooch. |
I removed the back and glued beads to the bottom for feet.
|I bought the flower arrangement in Paris. It brings me happy memories.|
Stay tuned. Tomorrow we will visit the Library.
