In a well-furnished inn, with black and white tiled floor and a light brown armoire with jugs standing on it, a distinguished gentleman in a black velvet robe with a white collar and matching hat is sitting at a wooden table with a pewter plate, a white cloth and a pipe. Next to him stands a young man in elegant clothes with curly blond hair, who orders drinks with an embracing gesture from a female waitress holding a jug and a tray with two glasses. The woman is dressed in a red top, a shiny green long skirt and white apron and bonnet. In the background on the left the view goes through a door to the outside to another gentleman. High quality painting, with particularly fine emphasis on the clothes. (12407510) (18)
