A seventeenth-century still life, probably English. This unusual still life could have been designed as a shop decoration, given the size of the panel.
It is clearly influenced by Flemish still lifes by artists such as Joachim Beuckelaer and Pieter Aertsen, in whose works the motif of a kitchen maid also often appears.
