Object history
One of a series of designs (on 6 sheets), probably full-size, for decorative panels with fruit motifs. Probably intended for a refreshment room, or dining room in the Houses of Parliament. The drawings have all been slightly cut. They do not seem to have the easy flowing characteristics of Pugin's work and it is suggested that they are typical of the work done in his style by Crace after his death.
