Unfortunately, little is known about the workshop of Johannes Burgers, we do know his workshop was located in the famous Amsterdam Kalverstraat. He was granted the status of purveyor to the court in 1833. Burgers was among the leading 19th century Dutch producers of kunstlakwerken.

A comparable set with the same decoration is in the Museum für Lackkunst in Munster, inv. EU-H-c-7.
