Description

One of the Resaurant's most unique features is the light fixtures cast of solid copper. Chinese dragons with lily pads and lotus blossoms form the sconces and reflect motifs Erhard encountered on his trip through China. The bowls of these fixtures are alabaster. "Ballroom-style" seating has been chosen for the Restaurant. This style was relevent at the turn-of-the-century in hotels and restaurants. The paneled walls in the Dining Room are of the original redwood. The lower vestibule and the Parlor entrance are paneled in quarter-sawn oak. The plaster panels above the wainscot were originally embellished with hand-painted grape clusters, leaves and vines framing each panel. The top of the wainscot served as a plate rail. The exterior Dining Room windows are a very fine German glass, while the wall sconces and matching chandelier are a Flemish-syle and are antique brass. The ceramic tile floor is another lovely feature of this room. The origin of these tiles is unknown, and therefore, irreplaceable.
