    by matcrazy1
 

This impressive and highly decorated room was carefully restored in 1970' with hundreds of original fragments of panelling and stucco-work. The reproduction silver eagles embroidere on the backdrop of the throne.

The entire ensemble of royal artists worked on this room, including Jan Bogumil Plersch, Domenico Merlini, and Jan Christian Kamsetzer.

The panelling by Victor Louis, was purchased in Paris. The two marble fireplaces came from Rome. There are also two beautiful console tables with mosaic tops, and the four statues of ancient statesmen and military leaders by Angelo Puccinelli.
