Her Majesty's Apartment at Holyrood, 1850. Interior of the royal Palace of Holyrood, Edinburgh, Scotland. 'The sitting-room newly fitted for Queen Victoria, is a very handsome apartment, the ceiling being particularly fine. The walls...are wainscoted with dark oak, which, having very recently been cleansed from the obnoxious paint of the last century, imparts a rich appearance to the room. The ceiling is deeply coffered and paneled, and the coffering excessively enriched with pendant festoons of flowers, modelled with wonderful spirit; the ceiling within being painted a negative greenish tint, and ornamented with a beautiful monagram of Victoria and Albert, roses, thistles, shamrocks, and fleurs-de-lis in gold...these ceilings were executed by a company of foreign artists, who travelled through Scotland in the seventeenth century, and who did many similar works in the mansions of the nobility'. From "Illustrated London News", 1850.
