Chopping onions in a wooden tub, 1646
The info at the Royal Collection Trust site describes the kitchen objects as symbolic. As a hearth cook I just view them as items every kitchen would have - a mortar and pestle to crush spices, nuts (almonds), etc; candles needed in the evening; and many kitchen scenes had bird cages (and later chicken coops).
