Description

Interior of the Supper Room in the Governor's Palace, Williamsburg, Virginia, 1935. A Chinese wallpaper pattern is visible on the walls, though it has since been removed. Among the room's furnishings, an elegant marble-topped sideboard table (accession # 1930-196) stands against the wall to the left. A dining table and chairs, a settee, and side chairs complete the ensemble of furniture.

Interior furnishings and decor reflect curators' views in the 1930s as to how Williamsburg's historic interiors may have looked in the eighteenth century. Nevertheless, with the advance of new research findings over the years, the interiors of the Governor’s Palace have changed to reflect a more authentic and accurate view of the building’s likely contents and room arrangements
