Picture of Table

The unusual work table, one of the two flanking the fireplace, has a hinged lid and sides that open to reveal trays and small compartments. It may have been designed for fine sewing or possibly for painting miniatures. The Argand Lamp, named after its Swiss inventor Aime Argand, was ingeniously designed with a tubular wick to burn brighter and cleaner than other lamps of the late 18th century.
