    The present work follows an early painting by Ruysch of circa 1683-5 now in the Baroda Picture Gallery, Vadodara, India. This latter painting, which has a false van Aelst signature and date of 1659, has recently been restored to the oeuvre of Rachel Ruysch by Dr Marianne Berardi. There are differences between the two works such as the addition of the large tulip and the cloth on the table in the present work. Dr Berardi and Fred Meijer have both inspected the current still-life in the flesh and believe it to be the work of a contemporary of Rachel Ruysch.
