The front elevation today.
The rear elevation before 1901.Salviati decorated the fireplace mantle in Scheibler's office with a mosaic of a gypsy woman (or alternately called a Turkish woman). A stand-alone, identical mosaic dated 1884 was sold in 2011 by a private collector in Connecticut for $32,500 through Christie's auction house.
The figure in the mosaic bears an uncanny resemblance to the woman in Pre-Raphaelite John William Waterhouse's 1873 painting "The Unwelcome Companion", including the tilt of her head and the shawl across her abdomen.
The building now houses the Lodz Film Museum, but a large part of the residence has also been preserved.
