Next to the dining room is a small boudoir which has also been covered in the same tapestry as the dinning room and the corridor. Three large portraits dominates the room; they are of Archduke Maximilian (brother of Marie Antoinette), Maria-Beatrice d'Este (sister-in-law of Marie Antoinette) and Archduke Ferdinand (another brother of Marie Antoinette). A large vermilion screen covers the window and protects the delicate wooden chest - I believe that it was Marie Antoinette's travelling chest despite the rather rough appearance.
