This impressive 19th-century still life depicts a sumptuous bounty of fruit, oysters, flowers and porcelain. It’s an abundant display - a celebration of nature.

This iconic style of still life was made popular by the Dutch old masters in the 17th-century when many of the goods depicted were considered highly exotic and precious. Middle-class buyers commissioned thousands of works to declare their newly acquired wealth and beautify their homes.

One such master, Abraham van Beyeren (c.1620-1690), painted in a similar manner so perhaps the artist was a follower.

The painting is housed within its original 19th-century frame.
