The enchanted world of Beatrix Potter has been brought alive by Beswick in their Beatrix Potter figurines. Not only did Beswick model Beatrix Potter but they also created a range of WInnie The Pooh figurines and Alice In Wonderland figurines – all often referred to as Storybook figurines.
We have just added a new Beatrix Potter figurine to our Beswick Beatrix Potter items, a Mr Alderman Ptolemy. He was modelled by Graham Tongue and was issued from 1973 to 1997. This example has the Beswick BP-3b pottery mark on its base. The pottery mark known as the BP-3b was in use by the pottery from c1974 to c1985. Given this information this particular example of Mr Alderman Ptolemy dates c1974-1985.
These figurines have a strong collectors market in the UK, being based on popular children’s tales has ensured they continue to appeal years after their first introduction.
