Provenance

Believed to have been in family ownership since the 19th Century or earlier, and probably the picture described in a manuscript family inventory, undated, but annotated before 1931, as one of two small still life paintings: 2 kleinere Olgemalde (Stilleben) among six paintings in the Kabinett;
Thence by descent until sold ("The Property of a Noble Family"), London, Sotheby's, 9 July 2009, lot 134.

Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Fred G. Meijer of the R.K.D., The Hague, who has inspected the panel in the original, for confirming that this unpublished painting is a typical example of Heda's work at this date. The dark background and niche setting are unusual, but elements within the picture are found in other works of around this date: the roemer and overturned silver beaker for example are found in Heda's 1649 upright still life in the National Gallery, London. We are further grateful to Dr. Martina Brunner Bulst for confirming on the basis of a transparency that this is an autograph work by Heda.
