J.W. Fredericks (op. cit.), states that surviving silver by Winter is rare and "the coffee pot of 1733 can be reckoned amongst the finest Dutch silver vessels of the period. The execution of the ornament is marvellous". The basic form of this vessel appears to be French 17th century although French models of this period rarely survive.
The ornament is strongly influenced by the work of Jean I Berain (1640-1711), Louis XIV's most gifted designer. The artistic achievements of the court of Louis XIV at Versailles were greatly admired throughout Europe. The dispersion of French Huguenots artisans throughout protestant Europe following the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 which denied them religious protection, further increased French influence, particularly in Holland.
