The interior shows the artist's sitting room at Oak Cottage, Wrotham, decorated with a Christmas tree. Mahoney produced a number of still lives of theChristmas trees decorated by his daughter and wife. The small size of the tree (made in fact from a single branch) mirrored both the scale of Oak Cottage, the artist's home, and the modest economic circumstances in which the artist lived.
