Ginger & Pickles: Another Fast Sell-Out

Filed under: Front Page — marilyn @ 11:13

Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Ginger & Pickles from 1909 was based on the former village shop in Near Sawrey where her old home Hill Top can be visited. Many earlier characters reappear as customers. In Hazle’s version Peter Rabbit is at the door and three cats are in the window, as per the book. The ceramic also features Squirrel Nutkin and Old Brown, the owl he tormented! Jemima Puddleduck is on the side. It’s not difficult to understand the appeal for collectors…

You may be interested to know that Beatrix Potter’s works are out of copyright in the UK as of January 1st 2014. A creator’s date of death is taken – in this case 22nd December 1943 – then 70 years are added – with any restrictions ending on the first day of the following year.
