M1154: Malacañang Palace Postcard

The postcard show the original ante-room of the Malacañang Palace Reception Hall. The wooden ceiling was carved by Isabelo Tampingco and the three crystal chandeliers were imported from Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. The chandeliers were removed during World War II and hidden prism by prism.

The hall was demolished and rebuilt, without the pillars, during the Marcos' 1978 renovations.
