Declared ‘the most impressive country house in Devon’ by the architectural critic Nikolaus Pevsner, Saltram House is a Jacobean mansion, completed in the 18th century for John Parker, 1st Baron Boringdon.

This green from the Dining Room was, in all likelihood, chosen to match a pair of urns he designed himself to display in this room.
