This magnificent oil portrait on canvas titled ‘Children gathering Plums’  was of 2 of Frederick Morgan’s children, Dorothea and Courtney. Morgan was born in London. He was commonly known as Fred Morgan and was the son of John Morgan, a successful genre artist sometimes known as 'Jury Morgan' (after one of his paintings "The Gentlemen of the Jury"). He is known mostly for his romantic and sentimental paintings of children in the same style as his contemporary Arthur John Elsley. As the painting is not signed, it is listed as the circle of Frederick Morgan.

The canvas sits inside a superbly carved gilt wood frame and measures 32 in – 81.2 cm high, 27 in – 68.5 cm wide and 5 in – 12.7 cm in depth.
