A maid is offering a cup of tea to a lady in formal attire. The lady is wearing a kimono with her family crest on the left and right sleeves and the back, and her hair is arranged in the "shimada" style. Maids usually wore short-sleeved kimono, but this woman is wearing a long-sleeved "furisode" and women's culottes. This may be the result of a mistake by the photographer. The layout of the alcove where a scroll is hanging and the setting of the floor with carpet-like mattresses are also odd.
