Louis XV Study

 by Harry W. Smith

The Louis XV Study is an exact miniature of his Study in Versailles. The walls of the room have 3200 individually hand carved and gilded wood ornamentations. The parquet floor is made of 2300 pieces laid in opposing directions to reflect the light. The candle lights flicker by a mini computer board in the room box. The cylinder desk has 2500 inlays of 37 species of wood and hundreds of gilded carvings. The large carvings on either side are of the Gods Apollo and Calliope holding candles.
