Depicting (left to right) in a corded off area is an open fire place in which is hanging a heavy Iron cooking pot. Right of same is a heavy urn. Under this a smaller pot with legs and covered with a lid.
Surrounding the fire place, hanging from the wall [left to right] is a large frying pan, a shot gun hung above a horse hair fly swat and a small bellows.
To the right of the fire place is shelving upon which are many kitchen related implements. One that isn't, appears to be a French carriage encased clock.
On the back wall is a wooden yoke underneath which is a long wooden table and a bench. On the table is a book, a metal casserole, a small basket, a decorated box [no lid], a small pot, a box and a metal iron.
