We are grateful to Dr. Fred G. Meijer for confirming the authorship of our panel to Elias van der Broeck and for his assistance in cataloguing this piece. This fine still life is set relatively early in the career of Elias van der Broeck, when he was still working in the studio of Jan Davidsz’s de Heem, circa 1669-1670. It is significantly close to some of his master’s late compositions.
