Vizcaya (3)

James Deering of International Harvester wanted his winter home to look like an Italian Estate. The interior courtyard was uncovered at the time. Deering bought antiques from different periods on his travels throughout Europe.
Some of the rooms are light filled, but quite a few are rather dank and dark.
Obvioulsy, he also travelled to Quimper, France and bought these dishes displayed in the Butler's pantry.
