From the guidebook:

Queen Mary’s Gallery was originally furnished with fine lacquered chairs, tables and cabinets and 154 pieces of Chinese and Japanese porcelain. The key surviving features of the room are the two ornamental mirrors of Vauxhall plate glass, supplied by Gerrit Jensen, with magnificent carve and gilt surrounds by Grinling Gibbons.

The book then goes on to describe other key features that are not pictured here.

We have just about finished the tour of the Palace, all that remains to be seen is the grounds.

    Lovely self-portrait – and in a most suitable setting, m’lady! You’ve also captured the porcelain on the mantelpiece, which is gorgeous also. Thank you, Cherie. Have a great weekend xx.
