Entrance Hall and Main Staircase

The guide standing on the main staircase is Joanne Scott.  She had been dusting the rooms with her feather duster as she guided me around the castle to take photos.

The two hanging  kilim-weave carpets with 'tree of life' design are from Craiova (NE Romania).  They date from around 1900.
