This salon is decorated in the feminine taste with elements of the high-Victorian style. Lace-trimmed tieback curtains, blue tufted upholstery, a round table covered with a print cloth and a large fern plant create a truly Victorian sensibility. In the foreground, two young boys, the older one standing and the younger seated, play with toys.
