A Gothic Queen Anne Structure with Queen Victoria presiding over the Dining Table seems about as British as they come…but The Empress has a more diverse European flair than you may at first think. Bob Blair and Sharon Welch-Blair, owners of the Empress, are currently touring France; so we thought now would be a perfect time to focus on The French Connection at The Empress of Little Rock!!!
Pictured here is our incredible eight foot, 1870’s sculpture, which came directly from a Paris street where it served Parisians water for many years. Now it servesThe Empress and our guests, not water, but with a beautiful view.
And here is our statue’s present day Parisian counterpart. Sharon snapped a picture of this beauty still in use on the streets of Paris! This one is cast iron and made in 1923. Water was pouring in a steady stream out of the top.
