Whistler visited London frequently from 1855 to 1858, mainly to see his half-sister Deborah, who had married the artist Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910), and her family. These visits provided the subjects for more of his etchings from this time and prepared the way for his move to London in 1859.
This still-life study, which stands alone in Whistler's etched oeuvre, was made shortly after his return to London from Paris upon the completion of the French Set or Douze eaux-fortes d'après Nature. Whistler and his brother-in-law worked closely for several months during this time at the latter's house on Sloane Street, London, where Haden had installed his own etching press.
