    1. It could be a bed box. The Dutch had these in their houses, in New York often in the corner of the dining area.

  1. A glass tankard–that really surprised me. It looks so very modern, and yet it isn’t, obviously. I also appreciate the slightly bowed candle–gee, now I don’t feel so bad when mine come out like that!

  2. I have no idea who painted this but love the picture. It looks like the guys who man our tavern at Fort Watauga during musters. Love the details in this painting!
