  1. Interesting that they show an almost pastel blue hat on the person drinking from the mug/pitcher. And what about that wooden pitcher down in the lefthand corner with possibly brash straps? Is that shown in other painting from the mid-1600?

    1. I haven’t noticed that pitcher design used by other painters, but I haven’t been looking for it. Jan Steen does paint it into several of his other paintings.
