Abstract:
In a rustic bedroom, a pretty, buxom young woman kneels before an open chest in which is hidden a handsome young soldier. As she holds open the lid of the trunk the two kiss, unaware that an ugly old man glares at them through a open, casement window and unaware that she has upset the full chamber pot at her feet. Beside the trunk are a hat filled with fruit, a bottle of eau de vie, and a mouse in a trap.
