The Wedgwood Bedroom

image1 image2 image3

The unusual fireplace in the Wedgwood Dressing Room, which holds a collection of blue and white Wedgwood Jasper ware, accounts for the name of the bedroom. Above the Carrara marble fireplace is an early Georgian looking-glass surmounted by a broken pediment enclosing a shell. The furniture includes an eighteenth-century French armoire de Dieppe, a four-poster Hepplewhite bed and two eighteenth-century Italian bombé commodes. The firescreen incorporating the initials R & M was worked by Lady Moyra on her marriage to Lord Richard Cavendish.
