The Sun on 10 March 1889 gave a useful description: 'a corner shop in Paris done all in white, with but a touch of green in two small potted plants beside the door. Nothing could be more luminous, delicate, exquisite, nothing could have been touched with a lighter, more masterly hand.'

It is known to the authors only from a photograph.
