Previously I have blogged about Intaglia and The Grand Tour. Now I have the chance to share some pictures of our intaglia collection. Last weekend we found our collection, still being in the process of unpacking some items, and decided that we would display them in the vitrines in the foyer, as they complement the classical decor with the Piranese etchings and bronze urns...
Above: The plaster cast medallions, or intaglia, that would have been collected by men during their grand tour through Italy.

A close up of some of the intalgia.
Some readers have requested photos of the China room. I hope to be able to share some of those with you early next month. We also have some exciting news to share with you in our next post about catering at Willowbrook.
