From the Pearse Collection: photograph depicting a panelled Dutch interior with a plastered ceiling, and double doors flanked by two cupboards. The richly carved decoration of floral swags, wreaths and trophies appears to be in the 18th century Neo-Classical style. The two chairs may be interpretations of the Queen Anne style. The carpet was probably added in the 19th century. Photograph probably considered for prof. Geoffrey Pearse's book "Eighteenth Century Architecture in South Africa", but never included.
