Mignon specialised in this sort of lush flower still-life. On the right-hand side of the plinth, he painted an orange, in clear reference to the Orange-Nassau family.

Just like another flower still-life by Mignon, this painting comes from the collection of the Orange-Nassau family. They were hung in Oranienstein Castle in Diez, Germany, in the eighteenth century.
