The green and silver color scheme in the State Dining Room was chosen to represent the trees and lakes of Maine. Complementing this scheme is a Priscilla Turner rug that is based on an 1870's design. The formal china is a Syracuse pattern in blue and gold bearing the State's Seal. The Maine silver served aboard two battleships, Maine (1865-98, 1905-22) and was rescued from the bottom of Havana harbor after the first Maine blew up in 1898 at the beginning of the Spanish-American War. Over the mantle hangs a portrait of James G. Blaine by Augustus Franzen, a gift from the statesman's daughter, Mrs. Walter J. Damrosch The state Dining Room will seat thirty-six guests.
