The plaque below is of a rarer form with, for want of a better description, three plumed feathers in each corner (a bit like the Prince of Wales' crest). I know of a yellow and black 'Prepare to Meet Thy God' plaque in this form, with a 'Dixon, Phillips & Co' impressed mark. I have therefore grouped plaques like this, with orange/yellow and black colouring, on the Garrison plaques page.
It is possible that more than one factory used this mould, and it is rare to find marked examples, so we can't be 100% certain that all plaques like this come from the Garrison Pottery.
The plaque above is currently for sale on eBay (please click here). My thanks to Sheila Wilson for providing this new image.
