That is an atelier copy of Pan of Rohallion by Frederick MacMoinnes. The original was commissioned by Stanford White for the Rohallion Estate he designed for Dean Adams in Rumson, NJ. The base of the statue says To Pan of Rohallion 1899. The original statue was at the Met for a while, after being discovered in a restaurant in NYC once the Rohallion estate had to be further broken up in the late 1970s.MacMoinnes’ Pan of Rohallion was immensely popular and he made several copies, some of which he sold and many he gave to friends and people he admired.

If the furnishings are not originally Edith’s, was the Pan statue hers specifically or is it a decoration added as appropriate to the time period?
