Social satire: a man in top hat complains to the waiter about the long time he has had to wait for his oysters, which the waiter is finally bringing to his table. The customer's walking stick hangs on a hook on the wall behind; an empty wine decanter and glass in front of him. Numbered '6' upper right; from a series of caricatures published in a Paris periodical.
