Experiencing the grandeur of Victorian charm is guaranteed to make one feel like a queen and little girls feel like princesses, but the experience is not just for women. Men feel quite “kingly” for having participated in this time-revered ritual. It is funny how they suddenly find their pinkie finger elevating just a teeny-tiny bit as they lift a fine china cup.
While perched at Hopetoun’s classic tables, take the time to gaze up and look at the sumptuous drapes, wallpaper, canopy, chandeliers, and the majestic, all-seeing Victorian circa 1891 mirror. The mirror misses absolutely nothing that goes on in the petite salon—if only it could talk, what tales it could tell!
