I believe that the young man had one leg over another.  I believe I see a cane, too, but not the end of the cane.  The hassock that he's sitting on has a ruffle... ???

That's really hard to identify!

His hands are definitely resting on something, but one possibility is that it's resting on the arm of whatever stool-ish thing he's sitting on. At the bottom, to the right (in the picture) of his leg is part of a piece of furniture. I thought it might be a small side table next to the stool he's sitting on, but I'm not sure.

I looked for some vintage photos online for examples, like this one:



I realize the two people aren't organized the same way as in your image, but the idea of a turned chair and the leg of that appearing next to the man's feet seemed to suggest a possibility for your image

When you look at how far up his trouser hem is over his ankle and shin, I think his leg has to be crossed at the knee. If you look at this one where they're crossed at the ankle, the trouser hem is much lower down:

Thanks, Jo.  I do think that the hassock is pretty close, but the more I look at the picture, I think, what I thought was a cane, isn't.  lol  Oi Vey!! 

Yep, it's the leg to something.... Time to take a break!
