This Dutch table, covered with precious Haarlem damask, depicts food served in porcelain bowls and on dishes. The plate with olives is possibly an early European imitation of Chinese porcelain. Van Dijck's paintings were mainly bought by wealthy merchants and other members of the elite, who besides paintings also possessed large quantities of Asian porcelain.
