The actor turns briefly from his mirror ...

The five things of note in this photo of Bob's dressing room c. 1934:  1. The cover of the stool is made from the same material as the curtains in the room.  Why, of course.  2. That is one nifty lighting feature around the mirror.  3.  The smaller object on the table is an alarm clock, an essential item in any dressing room.  4.  The photo above the mirror is a portrait of Bob's favorite polo pony.  A matted and framed photo of his horse, I believe taken by Hurrell.  Why, of course.  And 5.  That's Bob taking a cigarette break in his dressing room.  One handsome lad ... of course.
