The Livery Hall


A magnificently proportioned room with Corinthian columns of scagliola and a richly decorated moulded ceiling.


This magnificently proportioned room with Corinthian columns of scagliola has a richly decorated moulded ceiling in gold leaf. The draped embrasure in the north wall was designed as a buffet to display the Company's ceremonial plate. Above the arch of the embrasure appear the arms of William IV. To either side, in front of large mirrors, are marble busts of George III and George IV by Sir Francis Chantrey.

The four matching chandeliers of English glass, supplied by Perry and Co. in 1835, now electrified internally, each hold forty-eight candles. One of the delights of attending an evening reception or dinner is to see the crystal facets twinkling in the candlelight.
