Rideaux: curtains and fireplaces tour
Here are some snaps of my curtain and fireplace tour at Rideau Hall recently. I was intrigued by how impractical the fireplaces seemed i.e. that they were not lit so often. But the curtains were impressive. There was a distinct lack of tinsel in the very minimal Christmas decorations. No 1970’s salute in here! Ribbon seemed to be the favoured decoration.
Also, this item. This giant shell? Did you donate it to the Canadian people or the GG ? If so, step up and identify yourself as nobody is entirely sure where this shell or whatever it may be came from. Solve this national mystery in the comments section!
