The Servants’ Dining Room

The Servants’ Dining Room (or “Salle des Gens”) is visible through the serving-hatch. The 3.70 meter-long table was made according to specifications found in the archives. The fifteen numbered lockers on the left side of the back wall were used for storing the servants’ personal belongings: napkins, bowls, medicines, etc.

The mansion had a staff of from twelve to fifteen people, with a butler, manservants, a linen maid, a chef and their various assistants. The walls and ceiling are lacquered here, as they are in the Chef’s Office, and the lower paneling is painted to look like oak.
