Black-bordered pearlware plaques
The plaques below are almost always attributed to Staffordshire. See the portraits page for further examples with the boxers Spring and Langan.
Rev John Wesley
The text on the above plaques reads 'REVEREND JOHN WESLEY. M.A. Aged 87.' The rectangular version comes in three different sizes: small, 145mm x 120mm; medium, 182mm x 148mm; and large, 213mm x 170mm. Photos show smallest first, in which the full text is cropped. An engraving, by William Ridley (1764–1838) after a miniature by R Arnold (fl 1770–1810), is the source for this transfer.
Dr Adam Clarke
Faith, Hope and Charity
Faith, Hope and Charity come in two sizes with different transfers. The larger sized plaques, 8" x 6.5", on the top row. The smaller sized plaques, 5.5" x 4.5", on the second row. Below are black and yellow bordered versions, a white version, and an oval-shaped plaque with a brown border.
The small copper lustre plaques below are rare and very finely potted. To date, only Hope and Charity are recorded, and in different sizes.
