Drawing Room InformationTudor Place has a floor plan typical of the Federal period-two parlors flanking a center room. During the construction of Tudor Place, an African American craftsmen named Sam Collins cast the plasterwork of this room and the Parlor in the Conservatory. The Drawing Room was the more formal of the two parlors. It was the scene of many formal entertainments, such as a reception for the Marquis de Lafayette in 1824. Today this room features a portion of the Peter family's extensive porcelain collection, including examples from the Meissen, Derby and Bow factories.
