Cotehele, in the details

Anyone who has been following my blog for while will know that I love to look at the small details of a place or subject, especially when I visit a historic house. Last weekend at Cotehele was a real feast for my eye, so I thought I would share with you. I hope you enjoy this little gallery, click for a larger view and let me know which is your favourite!

  1. I have two questions, Gilly.
    1. Is that some kind of electric eye — or electric button — at the top of the bed steps?

    2. How do you sit in a Welsh Chair? It looks complicated and very uncomfortable.

    1. The white thing is a walkie talkie thing so the staff and volunteers can communicate between rooms – I think! I would have liked to try the chair but they all had strips of material tied across to prevent people sitting on them, but I think a particular shaped anatomy would be needed πŸ™‚ either lots of personal padding or none at all!!!

  2. I don’t think I’d have much luck with those steps but they’d make a very nice stool because I’m not at all sure about that Welsh chair.
    The brazier’s gorgeous and that tureen too. It looks a great place for a rootle around. Little bit far from my usual haunts. Shame! πŸ™‚

I would love to hear from you . . .
