Some of my Collector Plates Collection

Many years ago my Dad and I started collecting these themed plates - they were the "beanie baby" craze f the day, only alot more costly.

FLOWER BOY Plate - one of the most popular images associated with DeGrazia.
After we moved to New Mexico Ted DeGrazia became my favorite artist.
FLOWER Girl Plate
On a visit to Tucson, AZ we visited his studio and chapel - Gallery in the Sun. It was so peaceful and spiritual.
This one is very interesting.  THE UNEXPECTED PROPOSAL Plate by Norman Rockwell, depicts George Washington as the man, not the public figure.  

Want to see many, many more with full descriptions?  Just copy and paste the link.  Enjoy!!

I so agree. All his Indian children are adorable but those 2 are outstanding.
