I would like to know who M J C is and what company produced these plaster ware wall plaques. I pick them very cheap and sell them at very good prices and they sell very quickly. Fantastic quality work has gone into these lovely animals.

Most plaster plaques were made by Bossons; they have a silvered back, so always helps to have a photo of the reverse

Bossons did a very wide range.
http://www.bossons.info/bossons%20heads.htm
and were hugely popular in the 70's. So much so, that they had a number of imitatotors who were sometimes short lived. We used to sell a large number of Bossons way back the, but they were actually pricey enough for competitors to make a market by undercutting them. But many of these were short lived.  As Naomi says. the givewaway tends to the silver backs of Bossons. Mind you, I have never seen a signed Bossons piece.

The gift trade was a very big one back in the 1970's. People bought lots of souvenirs.

Thanks for your reply's and info. These are not Bossons I'm afraid, I have found few that sold on Ebay and are also listed as M J C with no info regarding who the company actually are. Would love to know who produces them. The back of the plaques are black/brown. Happy New Year and thanks for all your kind help in 2018.
