My Mother’s house (the one Mother owned in St. Louis in the 1960’s) was a “mini-mansion” that had been brought over “piece by piece” to the United States from France. The “mini-mansion” had been originally built in the mid-1920’s or 1930’s and had real “gold leaf” wallpaper on the walls; it also had wrought iron chandeliers and fireplaces (with heavy led “cherub/chariot” fireplace covers) in every room; it had 4 big bedrooms and a big 4 car garage.
