Interior of Melsetter House

History of this picture is as picture #1310, date is estimated.

Wolfgang writes:
'It is a "mirror image" of the print I have, but this view should be right - as far as I remember the house.
It should be a view of the Hall with its huge fireplace. Entrance to the Dining Room is through the first arch next to the fireplace; the little arch further in the back leads to the floor. The massive bar on the left divides the stairs down to the entrance (right hand side) and to the private rooms upstairs (to the left of the bar).'

There is a feature on Wolfgang's website about Melsetter House and its architect, available here, in German.
