Eloise Harriet Stannard (United Kingdom, 1829 – 1915) completed this lovely oil on canvas still life in 1869. “It is a study of white and red grapes, peaches, plums, pineapple and melon, with three pieces of Norwich Civic Regalia Plate, on a marble ledge by a window with red curtain drape. Eloise would acquire her fruit from Davidson’s Fruit Shop and paint this during the summer; during the winter months she was loaned the pieces from the Norwich Civic Regalia and would add the gold to her paintings. In 2010, this painting sold for £40,000.” Source: Let’s Talk Magazine
