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).

  1. Snow White's face on the Snow White & Grumpy plate is the cutest face! Absolutely adorable.

  2. Sheryl-- I totally agree. That's my favorite of the set.

  3. How much are these plates currently worth?

    1. I'm not an appraiser, but I've recently seen them for sale online from anywhere between $15 and $55.
