It is difficult to assess the painting. But in approach and execution, it seems to match similar still lifes by Elias van den Broeck. Incidentally, it is one of a group of works for which the authorship was, with extreme caution, attributed to Philip van Kouwenbergh. After further study, the opinion emerged that the vast majority of pieces in this group could, after all, be placed in the oeuvre of Van den Broek. The work was previously attributed to Franz de Hamilton.
