The hinged frame divides the picture into three sections. It shows a little girl with long plaits, dressed in white and a little boy in loose trousers and a jacket, wearing a flower wreath on his head. They sit beside each other, on a rope that is held be a boy figure on either side, dressed in Hungarian clothing, among tree branches. There is a hilly landscape in the background. The initials of the designer appear in the left, the maker's in the right bottom corner. The screen was probably introduced first at the 1903 Christmas exhibition.
