There have been a few fruit questions on the board Bernard, may be worth searching.

One possibility is Beranek, click on the link below and then choose 'Other':

John thanks.   Mine don't quite have the quality of the Beranek examples in your link, although they must have chosen top quality examples to illustrate their own website.

Norman Warbreck, in topic Three different fruits..... illustrates fruits which look quite similar to mine.   These were positively id'd by Anita (TxSilver) as Chinese.

I think that just about wraps it up.

You're right, Bernard. Recent Chinese. These look very nice in bowls and you don't have to worry about nicking them. Chinese place has a good place in the home.
