Painted scene of a country garden with flowers tended on the left, games of battledore and shuttlecock played on the right, lady on raised terrace under a parasol attended by a man and three women, older woman with fan, a woman watering flowers, and a man setting out plants. On the reverse shows two women playing with rabbits before a monument and a youth presents flowers. Gold-leaf couples with tubs of grapes are enclosed in rocaille frames of silver on the mother-of-pearl sticks. Source: Bennett, Anna G. "Fans in Fashion." Rutland, Vermont: Charles E.
