The Library at Quorn House - 1956

At this time Quorn House was owned by Mr George Farnham and his wife, Barbara. The Library had many books over 400 years old. The room had long windows looking out over the grounds and was half panelled in oak with an oak overmantle to the fireplace which made a perfect setting for part of the Royal Worcester Armorial dinner service and Dresden and Chelsea china. The old wallpaper patterned in a red, blue and gold leaf design was finished with a plaster frieze with the Farnham crest in gilt in the centre of each wall. The galleon in front of the bookcase is a model of the "Bonaventure", and was made by Mr Farnham himself.
