Shown is a 10.375 inch soup plate from the “Gainsboro” series. Each pattern in the series depicts a different variety or variation of fruit in the Aesthetic style. The TCC Database of Patterns and Sources includes 13 Gainsboro patterns, and this one is #12.  The DB entry identifies the fruit as peaches; we think they are plums! The series was made by Brown-Westhead, Moore & Co. (1862-1904) for the French market.
