Would you buy a print called Echoes of the Stylish Set and the Fashionable Life in 1977?
Well, Albert Lynch’s Echoes of Bon Ton and the Life of Fashion in 1850 filled that niche for 1887.
Lynch carefully composes the scene to show off the furniture and clothes he highlights—but also to give a sense of the overall social dynamic. It is that attention to the conversations occurring which makes the scene so vivid.
But it is nonetheless purely suppositious.
(Lynch wasn’t even born until 1851.)

Detail of a portrait of Louis, Duke of Brittany and later Dauphin of France, by Nicolas de Largillierre. 
He was the second of three sons born to his identically named father, who was the grandson of Louis XIV.
After his grandfather and father died (his elder brother died before his birth) he was heir to the throne of France for three weeks, before he died of measles like his father. His younger brother, the Duke of Anjou, then became Dauphin, and would eventually reign as Louis XV.
