Beth Potter Great Britain

Entrance Hall at Beatrix Potter's Hill Top House in Near Sawrey, Cumbria, England, UK. The room retains its original stone-flagged floor. The range was seen in many of her illustrations. The wallpaper was reproduced from that hung by Potter in 1906 and covers the walls and ceiling. The longcase clock dated ca. 1785, the Chippendale-style chairs, the Georgian-style dresser, a 17th-century oak press cupboard and other furnishings are depicted in some of Potter's illustrations.
