(The King Drinks, circa 1638)
Greg and I have been discussing old pots, and this painting has some fine pitchers on view. A big one such as the guy in the lower right was absolutely essential in a pub: the beer barrel was cool down in the cellar, and the jug was filled and then poured into mugs. This is a joyful scene, except that cat under the chair.
