Description

An actress wearing trousers and a lace collar is looking critically at her reflection in a mirror as a maid enters to bring her a saber, a small bunch of flowers, and a scented note. This illustration is from the series “Les actrices.”
The caption reads: “Mr Granger has just brought in my lady’s saber. There was also a messenger who brought a bunch of flowers and a note. The flowers have no scent, but the note smells good.”
