Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle

Opens May 23, 2014

The Dining Room

The dining room has a replica of King Arthur's round table in the center. Beside the gold plates are tiny knives and forks, also of gold. The glasses are crystal—and most of them are more than a hundred years old!

The five needlepoint "tapestries" in the room depict the Knights of the Round Table. The "petit point" works were commissioned for the castle from Madame Jorey, a master needleworker in Vienna. It is almost impossible to distinguish the stitches without the aid of a magnifying glass.
