Photographer's Note

Yesterday I brought you a picture from the outside of Queluz National Palace; today I show you a small part of its interior, namely:

"Tiles gallery and Cabriolet

This gallery was used as Ante-chamber. It was also called the Storm Shade Room on account of the glasse protectionof the candlesticks. The original paintings imitating tiles were replaced in the 1764 and 1784 by real decorative tiles representing hunting and fishing scenes, singeries, Four Seasons, the Continents and other allegorical figures. In 1761 the hangings were of green silk and the floor covered with a french carpet.

Cabriolet

Wood with carving and red velvet. Floral decorations, the side panels depict the royal coat of arms of Queen D. Maria I, Portugal, 18th century (last quarter). This carriage is one of a collection ordered by Queen D. Maria I for the outings the Royal States, especially to Queluz."

(This is the text we can read next to the carriage)
