Constructed for a 16th-century Ducal Palace on the outskirts of Urbino, Italy, the woodwork was purchased by Edith Fabbri at the outbreak of World War I and incorporated into the design of the House. It was shipped via two different vessels so that at least half of the room would survive if one ship was torpedoed. The woodwork was installed by a Florentine carpenter by the name of “Tonino,” under the direction of Egisto Fabbri, who designed the organ grille and the main entrance to correspond to the original design. The magnificent carved mantel was also taken from the Ducal library outside Urbino. The ceiling medallion depicts the arms of Francesco Maria II Della Rovere, the last Duke of Urbino.
