Notes
Content : Printed on border: "The luxuries provided for a queen could hardly be carried further in the direction of repose than the sumptuous bed furnished for the slumber of Marie Antoinette, as pictured above. It is the very dream of elegance, a poem in tapestry and down, an inspiration of garish magnificence, more than fulfilling the popular conception of royal ease and theatrical splendour." Includes additional text.
