Series of Two Bedroom Scene Plates 2004-2005
Royal Doulton Brambly Hedge
A set of two bedroom scene plates from the Brambly Hedge Gift Collection produced by Royal Doulton.
It is believed that this final annual series of four plates was never completed due to production finishing before the final two plates of this series were created.
The first plate, dated 2004, features Primrose's bedroom from the Poppy's Babies book, where Lady Woodmouse is helping Poppy to prepare for her babies' Naming Day.
On the underside of the plate it reads "'Primrose's Bedroom' 2004 Year Plate - The first in a series of four bedroom scene plates from the Brambly Hedge Gift Collection - The babies were bathed and put into their nightgowns. They were so excited by their new surroundings that they didn't want to settle, but at last they all fell asleep in the quiet of the hedgerow evening. Lady Woodmouse and Poppy sat and stitched the last lace onto the babies' gowns. 'How peaceful is it here' said Poppy. Jill Barklem 2003".
The second plate, dated 2005, features the children playing in the Saltapples bedroom, a scene from the Sea Story book.
On the underside of the plate it reads "'Children playing in the Saltapples Bedroom' 2005 Year Plate - The second in a series of four bedroom scene plates from the Brambly Hedge Gift Collection - The children played dominoes and five stones and made pictures with seaweed. Pebble helped Wilfred make a little boat with real sails and rigging, and Primrose painted a beautiful stone mouse as a present for her mother. Jill Barklem 2004".
Both plates approximately measure 8 inches in diameter, are first quality and in very good condition.
