"It stood upon the boulevard Saint Martin, at the corner of the rue de Lancry, and was constructed after the designs of M. Sobre. Its form was a parallelogram of one hundred and two feet by forty-five. The front presented three arcades sup­ported by four columns of Ionic proportions, with com­posite capitals. Above the arcades were four-winged genii in bas-relief, supporting garlands. The whole was surmounted by an entablature and a pediment. The portico led into a vestibule, above which was the saloon: the windows of the latter opened upon a balcony under the portico. The house was thirty-six feet in length by twenty-one in breadth. It contained two tiers of boxes, and held five hundred and twenty spectators. A private house has been built on its site."
