Portrait of a nobleman

A hookah-smoking man with profile to the right sits on a colorful carpet; in his right hand he holds the charter of his curved sword in front of him and also in this hand he holds a green beaded chain, his left arm is bent and the hand, in which a cloth, rests on his left knee. The scene is framed by a few narrow colored edges with framing lines in black and gold, the wider outer decorative rim has a motif of acanthus leaves in gold on dark blue and framing lines in gold.
