    Sorry chaps. But your culinary context is genrally relevant, while Hans's guess may well provide equivalent function.

    Without first peeking at the other answers, my guess is - <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">a Christmas ornament reflecting the table and people beyond it.</span hide>

    Something Escher left behind after he drew it <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Otherwise, is it a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">candle holder</span hide>?

    Skitter

    Getting very close, but [hint]: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">... nothing to do with Christmas.</span hide>

    <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15> but Escher may well have drawn <img src=/S/pun.gif border=0 alt=pun width=22 height=18> inspiration from one, which he may well have seen on numerous occasions.

    Culinary? OK - <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">a fish-eye that someone someone didn't want to eat</span hide>?

    How about a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">gazing ball or maybe some would call it a mirror ball or small lawn globe?</span hide>

    Not to eat, but your guess does focus on something of significance.

    You've got it Skitter! <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48> + [choccybar] for you! In fact, it's a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Butler Ball</span hide></span hide>.

    That's a new one on me, never having had the luxury of anything more civilised than a fleet of maids to wait on me. I even had to look it up <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Edited to add:
    Ah - you had already linked to it. The <!t>[hide] tags made a good job of disguising the link!

    Choccy bars and <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48> go great together! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>
