As is the case with most other rooms in the palace, the entrance hall has stencil-painted walls simulating tapestry.

An 18th-century gilt-rimmed mirror is bordered on both sides by 19 magnificent Indian miniatures on ivory; paper and wood, below, a beautiful alabaster console with a marble top. Opposite are three portraits of the Lombard school. In the umbrella stand, a small collection of parasols and antique sticks.
