With its aged oak paneling, leaded windows and massive carved staircase, the Oak Room evokes the great sitting room of an 18th century English country house.

The most unusual object in the room is the Queen Anne giltwood and gilt-metal chandelier, circa 1710. Based on the well-known designs of Daniel Marot which were published in the Hague in 1703 and 1713, the chandelier is one of the rarest forms of early 18th century furniture to survive.

The wyvern—or winged dragon—may refer to the coat-of-arms of the family who commissioned it or could simply be a dramatic decorative element. The Louis XV walnut canapé is part of the same suite of fauteuils that are in the Crystal Room.

The Duke Collection of Sporting Pictures was formed principally during the 1920s and 1930s when collecting English sporting art and particularly hunting scenes was at its height amongst the imminent horse-breeding dynasties in America.

Many such families would travel regularly to stay in English country houses, riding to hounds and attending the races.

The Duke Collection of Sporting Pictures focuses on works from the late 18th century and early 19th century, arguably the best period of fox-hunting when the packs were fast and the enclosed landscape produced ideal hunting country.

The collection, featuring examples by some of the best-known names associated with this genre including John Nost Sartorius, Henry Thomas Alken and John Frederick Herring Junior, is a fitting tribute to the sport and to the passion and enthusiasm of the collectors.
