Double doors have side hinges; leaded glass panels with wood frame; and stained glass medallions enclosing a coat of arms within a circle. Three arched windows with leaded muntins forming tall slender lozenges are atop doors. Narrow canted walls with leaded glass sidelights flank each side of door. Square half-columns carved with cartouches, medallions and strapwork atop a a paneled base flank each aide of the sidelights and doors. The wall has a carved crown molding; a portion of the ceiling border is also visible. Ceiling-to-floor dark blue draperies hang from brass rods in front of doors and side lights. Drawing is embossed at lower edge: "Return to A. H. Davenport / Washington Street / Boston, Mass." Drawing is affixed to cardboard.
