Description

A white-bearded man is seated at a table covered with an exotic tapestry; he is turning toward a woman holding up a vial. She holds her dress as she peers into the glass, while a small child appears to be holding a stick. In the left foreground are large vessels, and to the right is a large embellished trunk.
