More old photos of plaques
For completeness, here's the second page of plaques from W D John & Warren Baker's book 'Old English Lustre Pottery' (The Ceramic Book Company, 1951).
The bottom portion of the page contains two great plaques I would love better images of (top left, and third plaque on the second row).
Here they are close up (click to enlarge).
Also on the wishlist for better images, are these two plaques that Ian Holmes found in an old auction catalogue.
The plaques above show that there are still exciting variations out there waiting to be recorded. If you own the plaques and want to make my Christmas, please get in touch!
