Description

Interior detail of the mantel in the Governor's Bedroom of the Governor's Palace, 1935. The mantelpiece surrounding the fireplace exhibits richly carved neo-classical ornamentation. Beautiful details characterize each fireplace within the meticulously reconstructed Governor's Palace, which opened as an exhibition building in April 1934. This close-up view of the ornate carving and marble facing on the fireplace in the governor's bedroom offers a glimpse into the lavish architectural elements of the royal residence.
