Red Pepper with Antique Poison Bottle

Oil painting of a red pepper beside a green glass bottle.
Harry Secombe had a twin brother who was almost indistinguishable except for the fact that he always wore a red hat; hence his nickname Red Cap Secombe.  When asked to name his poison, Red Cap was said to have dubbed it Arthur.

Oil on canvas board, 4" x 6"
