In the banquet hall of Haddon Hall, a 12th—century manor in Derbyshire, England, the twin sons of Edward and Gabrielle Manners, Alfred and Vesey, play under a Christmas tree from the estate decorated with pinecones, dried oranges, and cinnamon sticks; the walls were made from local limestone and gritrock, the oak coffer is early 17th century, and the antique rug is Moroccan.
