Château de Compiègne. Third Salon

Share it

All the decoration is by the workshop of Dubois and Redouté. Above the doors are representations of "Minerva", "Juno", "Flora", "Ceres", "Hebe" and "Diana".
The exceptional fireplace is in green granite marble with avec caryatids and antique patina-ed bronze ornaments. The gilded wooded furniture by Jacob-Desmalter is covered in gold and green brocade made by Grands Frères in Lyon. The ‘J’ in the form of a horn of plenty on the seat backs stands for Josephine, although she never saw the ensemble.
