At left, 2 women (Katherine L. Howes[?] and Mrs. Franklin A.[?] Howe, Jr.) stand in front of Sir Nevile Wilkinson's "Titania's Palace." Both women face toward Sir Wilkinson at right. Sir Wilkinson stands in profile, facing left. He leans forward and slightly onto the table supporting the miniature palace while holding a miniature. The expansive and elaborate dollhouse is supported by a table or multiple tables that sit atop a low platform in the middle of a gallery space. The palace stretches back to the right. Between the women and Sir Wilkinson, the palace room, "Hall of the Fairy Kiss," faces the camera. Artwork lines the wall in the background at left.
