Over five years ago I saw a plaque in the window of Denton Antiques on Kensington Church Street. Inside was one of the finest collection of plaques I've ever seen. Denton have very kindly sent photos of some rare verses from their private collection.
The plaque above is very similar to one of my own (below). I've never seen these verses on any other plaques. I've posted them with several other plaques from Denton Antiques on the black and yellow plaques sub-page.
The pink lustre plaque below is also a rarity. I've transcribed the verse on the poetic verses sub-page.
Though the plaques above aren't for sale, Denton still have an interesting selection on their website. On the search page, select the 'miscellaneous' category and type 'plaque' as a key word: http://www.denton-antiques.co.uk/
