Queen's Robing Room, Houses of Parliament

Located between the Victoria Tower and the Royal Gallery in Westminster Palace, the Queen's Robing Room is used by the Queen of England to don her royal attire (including her royal crown) before the opening of the Houses of Parliament.

Salviati decorated the room's fireplace - designed by E.M. Barry and installed between 1864-66 - with enamel mosaics.
