Pieter Claesz composed this still life with a few elements elegantly placed on the table: a glass of wine, a metal candy dish lying down and a glass upside down. These elements are distributed alongside various plates with a half-peeled lemon, olives and a piece of bread. The scattered walnuts give this representation a casual aspect. 

The straightforward arrangement of the objects and the table and the general tonality of painting are the characteristic elements of this work by Claesz, making it one of the clearest examples of still lifes from the Haarlem school to which this painter belonged. Moreover, the organization of a still life around one of its forms —in this case, the large candy dish— is typical of Claesz's paintings from the sixteen thirties.
