Showing some more detail of the sensory overload in the Oval Drawing Room, this is a close up of the Georgian Gothic crown molding. The museum tour indicates this is made of plaster with 22 Carat gold leaf.
A wider view shows the rounding of the corner and the top corner framing of the panel mirrors.
From the hallway the Oval Drawing Room glows with natural light when the sun is shining, as it was this day. The room to the left is the Withdrawing Room, which runs across the entire front of the house.
This home has been restored to its 1808 appearance and is part of the Historic Charleston Foundation collection.
