On an open porch - masonry railing with short columns and the suggestion of arched masonry - a knight in full armor is being served something to eat at an elaborate throne-like table - servant brings tureen- wooden tub at foot of table - the same moustached knight we recognise from others in the series as well as the man with the wheel design displayed on his outer garment. (Jim Hahn 03/22/95)
