How Do I Date Beswick Backstamps?

Answer

Beatrix Potter figures have become highly collectable and so far, the 1990's has seen Graham Tongue develop the Beatrix Potter collection for the 100th birthday of Peter Rabbit in 1994. 1997 saw yet more celebrations as Beatrix Potter figures had been in continuous production for Beswick for 50 years. Miss Potter approached the Lambeth studio in 1908 with a view to having her own animals produced in ceramic. An earlier contract with another company made any arrangement with Doulton impossible and it was not until 1948, sadly after Miss Potter's death, that the Beatrix Potter figures were finally produced by the John Beswick factory.
