A dining room at Hughendon Manor. Benjamin Disraeli entertained Queen Victoria in this room for lunch in 1877. The chair to the left in the foreground is where the queen sat. If you look carefully, you'll see that the chair has been lowered ever so slightly. Disraeli had the chair customised for the queen's visit. Due to her short stature, it was modified so her feet would still be in contact with the floor when eating. The portrait above the fireplace is of Disraeli in 1877.
