Collecting Beatrix Potter Figurines
Beatrix Potter whose real first name was in fact Helen, was a great English author as well as illustrator who was most widely known regarding her kid’s books featuring characters that were all animals. Today, all of the characters from her books live on as Beatrix Potter Figurines.
So, Just Who Was Beatrix Potter?
Beatrix was born into a very honored home where she was educated by very strict private teachers and for that reason, she grew up separated from other children. She had numerous pets and also spent holidays in Scotland as well as the Lake District where she developed a fondness of the scenery, flora and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted.
In her 30’s, Beatrix released the hugely successful children’s book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Around that time she got secretly engaged to her publisher Norman Warne. This induced a rift with her father and mother, who did not approve of Beatrix marrying somebody of lower social standing. Unfortunately though, Warne passed on prior to the wedding ceremony.
Eventually Beatrix began publishing and also illustrating children’s publications full time. With all the cash from her publications, she became financially independent of her mother and father and was eventually in a position to buy Hill Top Farm in the Lake District. In total she authored twenty-three children’s books.
Beatrix died on the 22nd December 1943, and donated almost all of her possessions to the National Trust.
Her books carry on selling internationally, in a wide range of languages. Her stories have also been retold in several different formats such as a ballet, motion pictures, and also in animated films.
Such is her reputation, and that of the characters from her books, that many Beatrix Potter Figurines were manufactured.
These Beatrix Potter figurines which feature pretty much all the actual characters from her books have become extremely collectible and valuable. If you are a collector then eBay has the biggest range of Beatrix Potter Collectibles.
