LabelThis room and its furnishings were given to the Museum in 1939 by Eleanore Elkins Rice. Designed as an elegant setting for Mrs. Rice's distinguished collection of eighteenth-century French furniture and decorative arts, the room was originally installed in her New York town house. The woodwork of painted and gilded oak is based on designs by French architect Jacques-Ange Gabriel (1698-1782).
