A section from the "Chariot of Thetis" glass eglomisé mural that graced one of the most luxurious spaces in the history of French Art Deco: the Grand Salon of the SS Normandie.

“This is a kind of Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors) over 31 feet tall, in the shape of a Greek cross opening on to the promenade. The corner walls are covered with sumptuous panels of silver & gold mirrors painted of nautical topics inspired of the Atlantic by the painter and glass maker Champigneulle, after drawings by Jean Dupas (1882-1964). This illustration gives a great account of the luxury in which the passengers of first class are immersed during the crossing."

Please note that the right panel has a repaired crack traversing from upper right to lower center.
