I have a set of six plates made by Barratts of Staffordshire. They are Porkers plates with a pig on the front. Each one has one of the following written on them
Leave your figs- stick with pigs
Drink less hops-Choose pork chops
Preserve the jam- Try more ham
Cast off salmon-Go for gammon
Don't be taken-Ask for Bacon
Get the point-Choose ham joint
They are in mint condition. Is there any value in them?
