We know of no such dado pattern at present on any of the four walls or arch bases in the Sala de las Dos Hermanas. Jones' pattern may have been once located in one or the other of the two side chambers off the Sala, but the walls in these are now completely blank. The pattern here is coloured as from the version which appeared in the Great Exhibition.
