Regal couple in palace

In a palace room, a royal couple sits wrapped in a blue scarf; the woman has the long hose of a water pipe standing in front of her in her mouth; the man takes something from a box given by a servant; through the window behind them in the middle is a landscape of white mountains, a blue wall with a bowl on it and green bulbous trees; the windows on either side are filled in black. A dark blue (or black?) border with a floral pattern in lilac and orange around the scene; the edge is slightly damaged and irregularly cut.
