[Sca-cooks] Kitchen scene, circa 1600

I see two "faucets" with no stopcocks into a basin large enough to stand 
upon the floor.  Presumably there is an outflow from the basin because 
they are not all knee-deep in water.  I surely would like to see the 
piping behind that wall.

I also find the configuration interesting.  Servers appear to be taking 
dishes from a table in the middle of the kitchen -- or are the 
well-dressed gentlemen guests snitching from dishes that the cook is 
putting there before they are taken out by the cherubic servers?   Heh, 
we have had that happen many's the time.  ;-)
