Even while Alfred I. du Pont’s widow Jessie was living at the house, she wanted it to remain how it had always been; it’s grand but has a great welcoming homey feeling as soon as you walk in!
I had a few favorite things inside: They loved ice cream and had 100’s of ice cream molds because a plain scoop just wasn’t fun enough; They kept a lock on the molds and ice cream but not on their furs and jewels!; All the door stops were little sleeping cats and dogs.; They had so much china. A.I. was very involved planning their entertaining parties (complete with dancing Art Deco ladies to fill blooms with for table decor). I would love a few of those.
