    Interesting that they show an almost pastel blue hat on the person drinking from the mug/pitcher. And what about that wooden pitcher down in the lefthand corner with possibly brash straps? Is that shown in other painting from the mid-1600?

      I haven’t noticed that pitcher design used by other painters, but I haven’t been looking for it. Jan Steen does paint it into several of his other paintings.

    I recognize the Hash knife in the wall under the shelf My grand mother had one like it.

    Is that item in the upper left corner a skillet?
