2) These plates are hand signed and numbered in gold on the backside.

    I pirchased a full set in it’s own box but there were no stands. My set is Number 049. They have hangers on them and I usually rotate them to the top by season. I was told when I boight them in Thunder Bay his home at that time that the local financial backers stopt production at 600.

    I served him coffee at a local drop in centre while one hand was full of paint brishes.

    I would be interested in knowing their status at present.

      Dear John,

      Thanks for jour information, let’s see if a number higher that 388 will turn up.

      What do you mean with “I would be interested in knowing their status at present”.

      Can you send me a good phot of ‘Spring’, I only have a photo of the plate design as presented on the blog.
