    Where does the date come from? The items depicted look more like mid 17th century than 18th.

      The image is from an auction site and that was their guess at the age. While the topic and some of the items point to mid 17th century, I think it was painting technique and possibly color choices that made them put a possible later date on the painting. They may have just picked the latest date appropriate. This painting is so good I really wish we had more info on the artist.
