Thanks very much to Norman Lowe for getting in touch and providing some great photos. In my February 20th posting I said I'd be pleased to hear from anyone with a plaque from Moore & Co.'s Aesop series. Norman's plaque 'The Miser' is shown below with my own.
Also, Norman purchased the orange Moore & Co ship plaque mentioned in my April 21 posting. I wanted to know whether it was heavily potted. Apparently it isn't, weighing only 579g. This compares with 613g for a pink plaque of that form in his collection. And 666g, 692g & 696g for orange plaques of that form with religious verses. All plaques are 24cm across. So there is at least one well-modelled and lightly potted orange plaque out there!
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. Free advice given regarding selling and dispersal of a collection, or to those wishing to start one. Just get in touch...
