Hutch Located in the Upstairs Great Hall

This amazing piece is located in the great hall on the second floor. It is spectacular. I was just entranced and drawn to the beautiful little cherub faces near the top of it. Such sweet and delicate little features on them!! This suit is one that Larz designed for himself as he held a number of diplomatic posts, including a short stint as U.S. Ambassador to Japan throughout his lifetime.

Our tour director stated that he was what they would call a "Dandy". He sure did like to look the part and dress up.
