This Orchard Fruits pattern was first produced in the late 1930s. Like Doris Jones, Nancy Brunt is most commonly associated with fruit and berry designs. She was employed in the Aynsley factory between 1935 and 1975 and her work is signed “N. BRUNT” This "C746" variation with all-over gold wash in the interior of the cups and on the handles dates to the 1940s.
