Still Life with a Pewter Flagon and Two Ming Bowls, Jan Jansz Treck.
Faded, but still beautiful.
The bowls are an odd color because the artist used a type of smalt (cobalt glass) blue that was not lightfast.
In the National Gallery, London. Use fullscreen and zoom icons to right of the image.

Contrast effects of pewter, a.k.a. tin, with Treck’s signature of nonchalantly draped fabric/textile, and exquisite Ming porcelain with moldy slices of bread, which altogether are the fundamentals of a perfectly executed still life painting.
Thank you, Charley!
When even photography is put to shame and bows down to the painter.
