I've added some fabulous Wesley plaques across several pages. Huge thanks to their collector, who'd rather remain anonymous. I can't resist repeating my favourite below. This is one of the few Wesleys that doesn't pair with an Adam Clarke. So perhaps it predates Clarke's death in 1832. Have a look at a similar example on the Black and yellow plaques page. It shares the same shape, colours and impressed mark as a hand-painted 'Prepare to Meet Thy God' plaque, typical of the 1820s.
The progression of this website is dependent on the generosity of collectors sharing their knowledge and photos. There are now hundreds of people who revisit this site every month, from all over the UK and America. If you have plaques in your collection you think others might be interested in, please get in touch.
P.S. I've added a page for Relief plaques with three superb Wesley examples.
