Silver Service Rosedown Plantation St. Francisville Louisiana.jpg

This house has survived through many eras, never losing touch with its sense of elegance. Queen Victoria took the throne of England just two years after Rosedown was built, and much of the home remains furnished in items acquired during her 64-year reign. The ornate Victorian silver service is displayed here below the hanging crystal prisms of two table lamps. I was drawn to this scene by those prisms, which throw glowing reflections on the gauzy curtain behind it. The repeating diagonals seem to hint at the Art Deco era to come.
