A rabbit dressed in human clothing is putting his arm around a man in a top hat who is eating and drinking.

At the left, a rabbit dressed in human clothing has put his left hand around the left shoulder of a man with a top hat. The rabbit’s head, in profile to the right, is furry, and his ears are standing up. The man is holding a teacup in his right hand, and holds something in his left hand, which is raised toward his open mouth. A girl’s head can be seen at the left behind the rabbit, and a king with a crown stands behind the man with a hat at the right. A vertical pencil line signifies the edge of the composition, cutting the king’s figure in two; the right side of his body (beyond the vertical line) is sketched more lightly than the left.
