According to Fiorelli –

“The house consisted of a yard/courtyard immediately from the entrance doorway from the roadway, around which were the kitchen with hearth and a latrine, a cubiculum, an oecus decorated with figures of four-legged animals, a store-cupboard, and the triclinium lit from the same courtyard by a wide window, decorated with paintings of cupids in medallions surrounded by garlands, marine animals, four-legged animals, and a few paintings now taken away or faded. A doorway in this triclinium linked this house into the preceding shop.”

VIII.3.4 Pompeii. Drawing attributed to Giuseppe Abbate of paintings of four cupids, described as from “the cubiculum in the house in Pompeii with entrance on the roadway called “della Regina” at the rear of the Foro Civile discovered in December 1839”.
The location of the original paintings was already lost by Helbig’s time. 
They may or may not be from this house, but Abbate was definitely sketching in the house at this time, 1839/40.

VIII.3.12 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking north from entrance across yard, through window to triclinium of VIII.3.11. On the north wall of the triclinium (seen through the window), in the red painted zoccolo was a panel with a painted plant. The middle area of the wall was painted white.
According to Breton, found in this room was a painting showing Urania pointing at the celestial globe with a baton.  Even in 1870, Breton said it had nearly faded and disappeared.  The other paintings in the house had entirely disappeared. The house was named from a painting of the Three Graces, which was also lost.
