Home Scene 1744

Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin (2 November 1699 – 6 December 1779)


A lovely domestic scene, you can almost listen in to the conversation.  The numerous details: pewterware, tin canister, redware bowl,  bottles, bowls, food, girls clothing, pudding cap, toy drum,  long handled pan, round metal brazier.   What is that hanging on the wall?

  1. The younger girl appears to be wearing a “pudding cap” – I made one a long time ago for our son when we were with a Rev War group but I could never get him to keep it on. (He’s now 17 and a high school senior, but still loves re-enacting)

  2. That would be a young man in a pudding cap – still not breeched. His portrayal with a toy drum is indicatie of his gender.
