Grand still life indeed and well presented would have worked well ( for me ) without the food and plate as the other objects have a wonderful patina to them thanks for sharing Colin

Vanitas vanitatum, est omnia vanitas. This is what still life is about, the beauty and pleasure of today and how quickly it fades into the past. For me the miniature skull is unnecessary and a bit intrusive, the message is there in the overturned glass and I think this would be stronger without the obvious memento mori. But it's an excellent, careful, informed study.

Thanks v much for the comment. My Latin is a little rusty but I've worked it out (with help from my genius & beautiful spouse) !! I take on board your remark about the skull overstating the Vanitas message. Vanity vanity all is vanity (i.e. futility)
