Still Life with Crab and Scampi

My latest Still Life features two new classes. A giant Roemer which is filled with a whole bottle of wine and a flute glass. These things are extraordinarily tall and seem a little silly, until you realise they were designed so they could get past the very wide ruff collars they used to wear.

The fallen pineapple cup is how cups are usually portrayed in Dutch Still Life Paintings; I think it is a Vanitas reference to the fact that no matter how rich you are, you will eventually die.
