Plaster Roundel from the Ceiling of the Banqueting Hall in the Palace at Dean Castle

Period:
20th Century
Description:
The ceiling of the banqueting hall of the Palace of Dean Castle dates from the early 20th century when the building was restored but was faithfully cast from a much earlier ceiling from Balfour House. Roundels showing famous people were common and very popular in plasterwork ceilings such as this. This one shows Alexander the Great.
