Panel of jardiniere velvet, mostly red and green on yellow, with long, spiral metal fringe. Large curtain with heavy silver fringe at the bottom and passementerie braid on the two vertical sides. The pattern is very lavish with three flower filled urns almost the height of the piece, and multitudes of floral bouquets and borders filling the remaining space.
