Beautiful appointments in Clarkesville MO. Fireplace and wall treatment are wondeful. The cranberry glass works well with the deep red upholstery and rug. Typical rococo revival style so well-known as "Victorian."
Callers who arrived at a private home presented their card to the butler or servant. The caller was announced to the man or woman of the house then invited into the parlour to wait for their arrival. The visitor was given ample time to admire all the accoutrements of the home owner’s wealth and social standing, his intelligence, devotion to family and religion, and acceptance of new and modern ideas—all demonstrated without a single word being spoken.//
