Two ladies, a serving maid with a tea tray, and a gentleman kneeling on a chair watch a ragged youth who is kneeling down and displays a richly and fashionably dressed doll who appears to be walking on her own towards the group of observers. Behind the young man are two others, one playing hurdy-gurdy, the other carrying a large box strapped to his back. The scene takes place on a terrace of a large house.
