You can read Ian Holmes' guide to spotting reproduction plaques on the Reproductions page. He writes... 'You will probably never see a damaged or restored AGAMEMNON or FLYING CLOUD BOSTON plaque (because they are so new and also if broken not worth restoring).' And.. 'They often appear together as a pair'.
"Thanks very much for your email I appreciate it & I'm not at all offended, I know very little about the plaques or Sunderland ware, they were just items given to me ages ago by my father, I actually thought my starting price was fair for them & didn't anticipate the price they are at now. since having looked into Sunderland wear, I will contact the winning bidder before they make payment to explain exactly what the plaques are & they then can decide if they still want them or not, if they don't I will re-list with a different wording."
So all's well that ends well, and best wishes to the seller. I know from personal experience that selling items on eBay – all that photographing, listing, answering questions and packing – can sometimes feel like a thankless business.
