Setting up this website has already uncovered many fantastic plaques I wasn't previously aware existed. The Maling plaque below, in the personal collection of Elizabeth Bradley, ticks all my boxes. I'm half relieved it isn't up for sale, because at auction, I don't know at what point I'd stop bidding.
Elizabeth has a large selection of Staffordshire figures, and some plaques for sale on her website, including the exceptional plaque below.
Stephen Smith lives in London, and is always happy to hear from other collectors. If you have an interesting collection of plaques, and are based in the UK, he will photograph them for you.
