A sumptuous still life with luxurious wares of exotic origin in particular has been arranged on a heavy marble tabletop. In addition to the Chinese porcelain painted with figures, the oriental carpet, and 
the nautilus shell, the dark-skinned servant dressed in colourful, foreign garments accentuates the exotic atmosphere of the picture, which testifies to the colonial expansion of the northern Netherlands.
