The stereograph features a black and white image of the Blue Room, located at the White House in Washington, D. C.

The room features orange peel wallpaper on the ceiling and wallpaper with large medallions on the wall. A globe chandelier hangs from the center of the ceiling. A chair, mirror, and various plants make up the decor. The image is mounted on a cream card with rounded corners.
