This image also appears in a Raphael Tuck & Sons catalog for the 1889 season. It is an example of their offering for folio No. 144, "SIX STUDIES OF FRUIT", by Bertha Maguire. (Futher details on this and other Raphael Tuck "Studies" can be found at TuckDB Ephemera.) It appears that the same designs for the other 3 Arbuckle cards in this "Fruit" grouping likely can also be found in this folio.

Whether Arbuckles' used these Tuck images as the basis for their cards, or whether both companies just used a common source, is unknown at this time.
