Knowles Snow White Collector's Plate Set

A series of 12 Snow White limited edition collector plates were produced between 1991-1993 by Edwin M. Knowles Fine China Company and offered through the Bradford Exchange. Each issue had a firing period of 150 days. The plates measure 8 1/2" across, are individually numbered, and named-stamped in gold lettering on the back.

Each piece was originally shipped in a Knowles protective box accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and a 'seal-of-approval' paper from the Walt Disney Company Board of Review. Issue price per plate was $32.90 (see details in the Bradford Exchange client letters for issue #3 and #5 below).
