The double paper leaf is printed on the recto with a view of the restaurant interior at Hotel Cecil. Several female figures in fashionable evening attire are shown seated and standing; one holds a black feather fan to her face while a waiter offers her a chair. The hotel’s ballroom, with couples dancing, can be seen in the background. Signed ‘G. Grellet’.
The verso is printed en camaieu in blue with a diaper of trellis and roses; a central lozenge is inscribed: ‘with compliments of the Hotel Cecil’.
