Another oil-painting in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, is this flower still-life in a glass vase on a marble table. This work is attributed to Jan van Huysum (1682–1749) [1]. It is, however, in the RKD database attributed to his father Justus van Huysum (I) (1659–1716); it is dated according to his active period 1674–1716 [2]. Both worked in Amsterdam.

On this painting two snails can be found. Both are naturalistically illustrated, their shells dextral, and are likely Cepaea species.
