High Tea on Green Carpet by Dora Holzhandler

This is Holzhandler's wry and affectionate view of ladies who lunch - or, in this case, who take high tea. The attentive waiters, gilt chairs, hats, and flowers on the table all set the tone; and an ocean of extravagantly patterned green carpet stretches between the ladies and the young woman who has - surely? - been singing for their pleasure.
