From the same studio, but photos taken from the internet:

 

The curtain.
Hanging upside down in one of the shots,
turned around here for comparison.

 

The flower basket.

 

The gothic chair.
There are several other photographers who used a similair chair.
Below are 7 different chairs. The first is "our" chair. The second was
used by Robert H. Vance and is missing one of the pointy bits, in several
photographs of the chair. The 5th was used by Matthias in Norristown.
The others are by unknown artists.
