I have about 150 mostly British plinths in stock.

Bernard, is this still the case? If so, I'll e-mail you directly. :)

Anne — don't think about it, as I am not a spare parts supplier.   They are too important to me for reference purposes and for replacing damaged items in my own new stock.    Any spare plinths I use for swapping with china dealers who use them for display.   I don't have any left over; indeed I buy almost every spare plinth I find, and still can't find enough.

They come up fairly frequently on eBay.

OK thanks Bernard. The one I'm after is not such a common one so is proving hard to track down. :(

I think Peter and Anne's plinth are Bagley plinths.

As shown in the Bagley glass book (Angela Bowey, Derek and Betty Parsons). 3 inches tall, jut over 6 inches across the base and 4.5 inches across the top inside the rim.

It also says that Sowerby made a similar one with only two steps.
