"[Top image]: A plump, comely woman sits full-face behind a table whose surface forms the base of the design. Her dress is cut low, and her hair piled in a pyramid; her back is reflected in a large wall-mirror. On the table are trays filled with cards, dishes of fruit, a reading lamp, and a plant in a pot. A thin elderly woman, similarly dressed, stands looking at her in profile to the right. [Bottom image]: A fashionably dressed woman sits in profile to the left, at an ornate table raised above the floor of the cafeĢ, studying a pamphlet or menu on which is the word 'Paris'. Her arm-chair is decorated with ornaments, the arm terminating in a ram's head. Customers and waiters (left) are on a smaller scale. Columns with ornate capitals support the roof, and the wall is decorated with large paintings of nude and heroic figures."--British Museum online catalogue, description of a variant state.
