About this object

A scene of two women seated in an interior. The woman at the left is blond and wearing a white satin dress with pink bustle and a blue bow in her hair. She is seated in a chair with a richly embroidered back. She is looking at a ring on the left hand of the other woman who is dark haired and wearing a hat decorated with ostrich feathers, a yellow satin dress, and a dark purple over mantle. She holds a pair of gloves in her right hand. She is seated in a red savanarola type chair. At left foreground, there is a mandolin resting on a wooden stool upholstered in turquoise. At the right is a table covered with a red oriental textile, on which rests a blue and white vase filled with roses which stands next to a silver tazza filled with oranges. Behind, in dark shadow, is a large ornate fireplace with a painting hanging above it and two vases on the mantel.
