Of course this one is so full that I won’t even try to mention everything. It reminds me of Hogarth. Don’t miss the dressed up dog. Detail: jackets, sedan chair, sailors, striped caps, ladies hat, pottle baskets, swords, dirk, dogs, great coat, neckwear, chimney sweep, striped knit caps.

This painting, while it might not have as many objects still has items of great interest. I am especially drawn to the shirt collar and the waistcoat detail, the small brass buttons. Of course the jug is great, interesting large opening. Knives can be a bit tricky to really nail down at times and this knife, although we can’t see the tip, gives us some good information.
Details: fur cap, mallet bottle, shirt collar detail, waistcoat and buttons, jacket, bellarmine jug, redware plate, ham, wood handled knife.
