Petit Trianon: Small Salon of Madame Élisabeth

The most striking feature about this room is the floral tapestry that covers the walls. However, it is not the original tapestry but a reconstruction based on those chosen by the Queen's Furniture Keeper from the 1780's. The fireplace is of genuine marble with grey lines. A portrait of Madame Élisabeth herself hangs on one of the walls. The same fabric used for the tapestry has been used for most of the remaining furnitures: the curtains, the chairs and even the fireplace-screen has been lined with this reproduction. The window overlooks the English garden.

And here we have her: Madame Élisabeth
