Leather!- # 09/145

Those of you who like the arty Ham House shots might like to see this simple snap I did for a feature in the local newspapers promoting the display of a luxurious leather wall hanging that has been hidden away in store and in separate exhibition rooms.  It has been rehung on display so that more visitors can admire it in its proper context.

You will recognise the floor (see earlier "Servant Girl").  The wall covering is entirely of leather, and of course the pretty hanging above the table is the wall hanging just brought out for general display.  All the leather is the original 1672/3 "re-decoration" of the house.

Enlarge the photo and admire it.  Better still, go and see it before the house closes for the winter. (That's the time when I become most busy helping with all the winter maintenance.)

  1. I am having a hard time believing it's leather but I must bow to you the expert. I would love to see it, but alas I'll have to visit via your wonderful photographs.
