Hollstein identifies this as one of only four prints by Leonard Bramer. Of these four rare prints he only located impressions of the two still lives, The Lute Player (Holl. 3) and The Travelling Box in the collections of C.E. von Liphart (1876), Nostiz (1927), Passavant (1929), Leningrad (1930) and Freidrich August II (1936-7). The attribution of Bramer's prints has been discussed by Brulliot, Duthuit, Wickmann and others, and more recently by Michiel Plomp and Jane Ten Brink Goldsmith in Leonaert Bramer, Ingenious Painter and Draughtsman in Rome and Delft, Zwolle and Delft, 1994 who believe it unclear whether the prints were executed by the artist's hand, or whether a work like this might have been made after one of the artist's few and now lost still life paintings.
