Antoine-Émile Plassan's painting “A Tasty Treat”

Antoine-Émile Plassan (1817–1903), “A Tasty Treat”

What a graceful and playful painting! And it also vividly depicts the spirit of an old house which I attempted to paint in words for my newly created jewelry sets "Out of Antique Box" and "Scent of Wax"... When I looked closely at the painting, observing its marvelous wooden carvings, old things as if thumbed by time, heard an old clock ticking on the table, I  thought – how many of us have a happy chance to live in a house built by our ancestors, our grandfather and grandmother at least? How many things have we preserved from previous generations? So little!
