Description

"Less crowded with articles of furniture than the apartments of ladies of quality in England, the decorations of a bedchamber and boudoir in China are not less costly or complete - a suite of rooms being appropriated to the females of the mandarin's family, to which the husband, children, and female relations and attendants are alone admissible; these are uniformly fashioned, and filled and furnished in a style of beauty and convenience that displays both taste and liberality." (Allom, 1842, v. II, p. 30).
