In the Alte Gemäldegallerie, Kassel, this still life with vegetables and fish is attributed to the local artist F. Welte. The object is dated 1756. Besides vegetables, fruit and different fish species, also a bunch of snails is seen.

The snails are Helix pomatia (Linnaeus, 1758) and are undoubtedly meant for consumption.
