Although this is a weired setup, but it should work, as the frames are sent untagged on access ports.

As i told you before although this is a weired setup as it makes no sense to connect 2 switches via access ports, they should be connected via trunk ports (in order to be able to handle all the VLANs between the 2 switches), but it should work as the frames are sent untagged on access ports and this shouldn't have any impact on the ports.
