The 3-piece collector set - with plate, bowl and cup - is also highly sought after, while anything from the year 1982 is particularly valuable. The Wedgewood Peter Rabbit teapot is also very collectable.
Peter Rabbit china from the 1960s - especially if it’s still in its original packaging - is also in demand, say collectors. The SilverPlate Coin Bank is also highly collectable.
Additionally, the series showing Mrs Rabbit putting Peter to bed - with the words: "Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed and made some camomile tea. One tablespoon to be taken at bedtime." - is also believed to be valuable.
Expert Dean Six says ‘collecting is often what you remember’ - and given that the Beatrix Potter Wedgewood range brings back childhood memories for many, it has a high resale value.
Experts say single items on eBay and Etsy can earn up to $100 each - but whole collections, especially when in mint condition with no cracks or chips can earn substantially more than that.
Says Wedgewood experts In Good Taste: ‘Today’s porcelain and china collectors are consistently drawn to the exceptional quality and sheer variety of motifs embodied in antique Wedgwood china. Wedgwood had the uncanny knack for blending timeless taste with cutting-edge style, an unrivalled combination that helped to build one of the most enduring ceramic workshops in history.’
