Two fashionable young women sit opposite one another, one fair haired, holding a fan, and wearing a full-skirted white dress with pink overshirt, ruffles at the neck, and bracelets on both wrists, as well as a large straw hat with blue bows. The figure at right has dark hair and wears a loose gown with a floppy collar, and deep decorative cuffs, and a oversize mobcap style hat.
