Insole Court in South Wales and the fine parquetry with inlay border. Craftsmanship of the 19th century.

The Insole Court is a Llandlaff, South Wales located mansion who belonged to James Harvey Insole, a colliery proprietor. It's a mansion whose building started at the middle of 19th century and went through a series of rebuilding and redecoration phases afterwards.

What interests us is the parquetry flooring installed in the house in the 19th century which, in the dining room, features a splendid parquet border.

I have found two detail images on Mark's photo stream at Flickr:
