Craigdarroch Details

Like the Legislative Assembly Buildings, Craigdarroch Castle is an imposing pile of stonework from the outside. But what makes repeated visits a delight are the details, the many lovely objects scattered throughout the interior of the castle. Here's a little sample. Above is a silver tea service. To the left is a portrait of Queen Victoria looking less dour than in many. And to the right is a detail of a silver table centerpiece from the dining room.

There is a beautiful inlay jewelry chest in one of the bedrooms that I want sooooo bad.

These are magnificent pictures. You sure brought out the sumptuousness of the scene.
