Still-Life with Partridge and Iron Gloves[1], also called Partridge, gauntlets, and crossbow bolt (1504) is a painting by the Italian artist Jacopo de' Barbari, in the collection of the Alte Pinakothek, Munich.

This still-life is often called the first small scale trompe l'oeil painting since antiquity; it may well have been the cover or reverse of a portrait. However, the fragmentary panel Two Venetian Ladies by another Venetian, Vittorio Carpaccio, also has a trompe l'oeil letter-rack[2] of about 1490 on the reverse.
