Eustis Estate

Dining Room A Carved Masterpiece

The stained glass panels in the sideboard are likely from the studio of William J. McPherson, identified by the signature on the edge of one of the stained glass panels in the vestibule doors. The solder detail on all the first floor stained glass shows the same decorative treatment of small ball at each of the joints.

While we have no evidence of who the wood carvers were, the Eustis family speculates that the carved panels that flank the sideboard are the work of Luigi Frullini, whose Florentine workshop created the carvings for the dining room and library of Chateau-Sur-Mer in Newport, Rhode Island in the 1870s.
