    Would love to win the lottery so that i can, not only pay for the full cost of the restoration of this Unique and Special Chinese Wallpaper, but, to restore the Iconic and Unique Dome, which is not open to the public, to the Prince Regents original plans, which never came to fruition.

    I agree entirely as would I, especially as one of my distant relatives was responsible for the town of Brighton acquiring the Pavilion from Queen Victoria and a painting of him is including in the Chinese murals.
