description

Summary

Print shows the interior of a dining room with several men sitting around a long table, standing to the left is Chauncey Depew with right hand raised in toast to President Grover Cleveland sitting across the table; among those sitting around the table are former and current cabinet members, including Daniel Lamont, John Carlisle(?), Thomas Bayard(?), Lucius Q.C. Lamar, Judson Harmon(?), William Collins Whitney, Walter Q. Gresham, J.S. Morton, Richard Olney(?), William F. Vilas, and William L. Wilson(?). Boxes of "Bouquet" cigars are prominently displayed on a table and a waiter is offering from an open box, also "Moet & Chandon" champagne is on ice in buckets on the left. Possibly a pun on the name of the cigars, "Bouquet Hall" rather than "Banquet Hall".
