Another Shot of The Living Room

Made to receive guests and facilitate civilized gatherings- this rooms in replete with many sitting areas and offers the rare treat of music in the form of an organ. The crown moldings through out this room feature gouged reeding of 7- 13 layers.  This is also seen on the high Federal, slightly bowed front period mantle piece.  The rare faux painted wainscoting that surrounds this room features very realistic bird's eye maple.  The back of the entry door is comb painted.   The circa 1870 organ is from Walterboro, South Carolina. The sofa and chairs are from Charleston.  We see a sturdy, 1810, Columbia, SC chest.  A very rare example of an early 1720 Charleston tall clock stands in the corner- constructed of cypress.  Also present are a 1750 Charleston low- boy, an 1845-1848 Beidermiere sofa, an 1840 Empire period, slant front bookcase desk as well as a 1790 heart pine table made in South Carolina.  Note the two coach lanterns resting atop the desk- a rare pair from 1750- from a Charleston home.
