If these plates were made in Sunderland they would have been made by
J A Jobling glass works. Are there any marks on to suggest they were made in Sunderland? There were a lot of companies making this type of glass commemorative plate; some are still in existence. These were obviously made in commemoration of the Boer War but I am sure the owner is aware of this. Sorry that I cannot add more on the subject at the moment.

I believe J A Jobling used a Phoenix as their trade mark during that period

I actually have one of these plates but i dont know where they were made,it was passed down to me from my grandfather,i contacted a bloke who collects this sort of stuff and he says they sell to collectors for upwards of £30 depending on condition.
