A small sitting room is flanked by Sarah’s bathroom to the east and a dressing room to the west. To the south, on top of the partner desk, is a Tiffany lamp made of bronze and Favrile glass lily shades. Favrile glass is a type of iridescent art glass developed and patented in 1894 by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The sitting room also contains Sarah’s nineteenth and early twentieth-century Harper’s Weekly magazines in bound volumes, as well as books on local and regional history.
