Here is a really good close up, I now think these could be green grapes as clusters

They seem to be bigger than the olives on the plate, which would be the same size as grapes. I'm going with figs

Not individual grapes, two grape clusters as in a bunch. They are just not so detailed.

Considering the detailed work in other parts of the painting, I would expect to be able to see separate grapes if that's what they were. They look like solid fruits to me.

That's a good thought, too, Dawg.

I'm fascinated by this whole thing, and a little frustrated that I can't find information on this particular painting lol There was an exhibition of his work in the United States in 2000 and a catalog associated with it, but it doesn't look like this one was included.

Apparently he painted each item individually, deliberately with great detail. Very interesting.

I'm actually wondering if they might be dried gooseberries. The size looks about right, and gooseberries are native to Europe.
