Photographer's Note

One of the 2 wings at the Skogaholm Manor (Herrgård) in Skansen, depicting life in the late 17th century and early 18th century. I think this one might be the east wing kitchen. The 2 buildings are identical in style.

"The west wing contains the library, the china pantry and five guest rooms. In the pantry the blue and white china service used for special occasions is displayed."

From the Skansen website:

"The red-painted wings come from Gullaskruv in Småland. The eastern wing contains the kitchen which was housed in a separate building because of the risk of fire. And with the kitchen at a distance the manor was not disturbed. Food was prepared on the iron range and there was special provision for dishes requiring lengthy cooking. There was also a bread oven. The finished dishes, covered by domed brass lids, were carried over the yard to the dining room in the main building.
The kitchen wing also houses a maids’ room with three beds, a larder, the servants’ dining room and the housekeeper’s room."

Not the best lighting, but always better to get a shot than no shot at all. Like the main manor house, the walls have used Falun red paint.

A wide angled shot I found on the net showing all 3 buildings. The central manor house, the kitchen wing and the library / porcelain wing
