Persian prince sits on an upholstered stool, columns and arches behind him. He sips from a glass; a young black-skinned slave offers a tray with a glass dish on it. The prince has a black beard and a cone-shaped hat perhaps made of fur or the skin of goat or other animal. His coat is green velvet with yellow lining. One part of his other garments is striped with orange-red, and a part over his chest is also orange. The slave wears white over a blue striped shirt, and large fez of red with blue tassels.
