These are two interesting items. In 1979 the plaque was created for Belleek Collector's Society members - close to the end of the 6th period, which was March 31, 1980. The plaque doesn't really stand up well on its own so the next year, a stand was made for it. By then the pottery had changed its mark to the gold, 7th period mark in April 1, 1980. I find it interesting since these are two items that go together, made a year or so apart yet appear in different periods (6th and 7th).
