Fun Monday ~ Beatrix Potter Collection

Mariposa is hosting Fun Monday this week and her assignment is to post about a collection we have. I have lots of collections but I’m choosing my Beatrix Potter Figurines to show. The photos are not great quality but you’ll get the idea…

These were mostly collected in the 1970′s. I got a fair number of them while travelling to Great Britain in 1973 and 1974. They are all F. Warne & Co.Ltd. Beswick, England.

Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Mopsy Flopsy and Cottontail, Mrs. Rabbit

Mr. Benjamin Rabbit, Mrs. Flopsy Bunny, Mrs. Tiggywinkle, Sally Henny Penny

Goody Tiptoes, Timmy Tiptoes, Tailor of Gloucester, Johnny Townmouse

Lady Mouse, Samuel Whiskers, Hunca Munca, The Old Woman who lived in a Shoe

Aunt Pettitoes, Little Pig Robinson, Pigling Bland, Amiable Guinea Pig

Jeremy Fisher, Mr. Alderman Ptolemy, Sir Isaac Newt, John Joiner

Ribby, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddleduck, Mrs. Tiggywinkle

27 figurines in all. I posted Mrs. Tiggywinkle twice to fill in the collage and because she’s my favorite. I was having a “senior moment” on a couple of the figurines and couldn’t remember their names…

  1. You have a very nice collection. The figurines are lovely reminders of Ms. Potter’s delightful tales. I have a Mrs. Rabbit and Bunnies figurine from the same manufacturer

  2. I can see how collecting these charming figurines would be addictive. Especially if you could purchase them “on location” in England–is that in the Lake District? I’m remembering some mention of Beatrix Potter there on a trip a few years ago. I should be better informed. . .

  3. Very cute! I once did a birth sampler in cross stitch for a friends little boy with Peter rabbit as the main picture! It was very well received. Some characters are just timeless!

  4. Samuel Whiskers used to scare the **** out of me. And that story made mutton sound just hideous.

    I have a Jemima Puddleduck ornament for my Christmas Tree. My son just loved Jemima stories.

  5. Hi Ellen,

    Absolutely charming! What a coincidence…. I am just now getting ready to start my Beatrix Potter Figurine collection too. Thanks for sharing your collection with us!

    I have been wanting to read the biography of Beatrix Potter that just came out not too long ago, but haven’t gotten to it yet.

  6. I love her books! What a lovely collection of Beatrix Potter figurines!!! Reminds me I have my sister’s half along with my half of mom’s Hummel Collection (while Barb’s traveling) but methinks I don’t choose to post photos. My Fun Monday post is at Small Reflections.
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. I too have a collection, though not as many as yours. I am a muralist and have painted the scenes from Peter Rabbit in many a child’s room. He is still my favorite. Have you seen the movie “Miss Potter”? It is quite charming.

    Hi Brenda, Yes, I have seen the movie and I’ve read one biography about her. I bet those murals are wonderful…
