This sumptuous composition includes a number of accessories which appear in different arrangements in many of van Beyeren's paintings. The silver-gilt standing cup and cover appears frequently throughout his work. The lobster, a similar cup and cover, lemon, dish, melon and tazza all reappear in a still life in the Metropolitan Museum, New York which is also undated but, like this still life, may predate his earliest dated work of 1653.
