Guest Bedroom

This is the only bedroom on the first floor.  There are seven bedrooms upstairs, and when those rooms are all in use, this room is also available. 

It was used during the visits of President Clinton, Princess Anne, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, King Hussein, and Prince Charles.  Because of their entourage, one of their staff members slept here.

The display of the porcelain bird is not an antique; it is English Bone China.  The Garden Club of Georgia presented this piece to the Mansion during the Presidency of Deen Day Sanders (1987-1989).  It represents the brown thrasher, which is our state bird, and the Cherokee rose, which is our state flower.  The basin stand supporting the Bone China piece is mahogany and is attributed to William Hooks of SalemMassachusetts (Circa 1815).

The wallpaper panel in this room is French (Circa 1850).  It was done with woodblocks that were destroyed in 1860.

The bed is called an Alcove Bed and is attributed to Charles Lannuier of New York (Circa 1815).  It is mahogany and is in the French Retour D’Egypte style.
