Gramps gets a button when he buys any three plates from the Heritage House Collection. This year's collection includes images of Americana treasures like Mount Rushmore, Coney Island, and Niagara Falls as well as some of Rockwell's most famous paintings such as Mr. Remington and Miss Shaw and The Fourth of July.
Each plate features images that represent the spirit of America at its best. The first six plates in the series were painted by Americans who wanted to express their feelings about what makes this country special.
In 1990, the Norman Rockwell Museum created the Heritage House Collection to pay tribute to artists whose work has inspired him throughout his career. This collection is unique because it features original artwork by Andrew Wyeth, Charles Sheeler, and other popular artists.
The seven plates in this collection are being sold with Heritage stamps that match the numbers on each plate. When you buy a group of three or more, they add up to go toward a prize draw to win one of these plates.
Number 7 was canceled after it was issued.
According to Antique Trader, Norman Rockwell plates, which were originally worth $50 to $75, are now selling for $10 per plate. Collector plates by Norman Rockwell are only worth approximately $10. The Franklin Mint also produced collector plates with Norman Rockwell artwork printed on the surface. These plates are not considered antiques but rather museum-quality replicas.
Norman Rockwell was an American painter and social commentator who created popular images of suburban life in the 1950s and '60s. His paintings have been featured on postcards, posters, T-shirts, backpacks, hats, and other merchandise over the years. In 2004, an auction house estimated his work was worth $40 million.
However, the value of these products tends to be low compared to that of modern artists because they lack the recognition or popularity of their contemporaries. For example, one of Rockwell's paintings, "Fourth of July," sold at Sotheby's in 2003 for $120,000.
Furthermore, many of Rockwell's paintings are based on copyrighted images so they could not be used for commercial purposes without the artist's consent.
In addition, many of Rockwell's paintings were done as commission pieces so they would always need to be completed before he could sell any merchandise featuring them.
When offered for sale at auction, most plates, even when accompanied by their box and all of the material that came with them, sell for a few dollars, i.e., between $1 and $4. Some high-quality copies command higher prices but there are still plenty of affordable options available.
After accounting for the cost of materials and labor, an expert appraiser could probably estimate how much money someone would have to be willing to spend to own a good-quality plate. Based on recent sales, it would be safe to say that they are worth anywhere from $100 to $500. However, because these plates are so rare, they could potentially be worth far more than that.
Thomas Kincaid was an American painter who specialized in scenic watercolors. He had a very successful career during his lifetime and is now considered one of America's foremost landscape artists. His work has been featured in several books about famous painters and is also sold through galleries and art dealers.
Kincaid produced nearly 500 paintings over the course of his career and almost all are signed and dated. Although not all plates were sold individually at first, by the late 1890s most were being marketed this way. In fact, after 1897 only five more plates were painted until 1902 when Kincaid stopped painting entirely.
The Bradford Exchange - The Bradford Exchange is a well-known brand in collector plates, having produced several series throughout the years. Complete sets of 12 plates in their original packaging may sell for approximately $200 on eBay, while individual plates can be purchased for as low as $1. The majority of collector plates are worth relatively little. However, certain series do contain more valuable plates.
In 2011, the Bradford Exchange released its Christmas plate collection. These plates are unique in that they were designed by various artists and illustrators. Some famous names include John Gast, Norman Rockwell, and Charles D. Jackson. This release was part of an effort by the company to move away from simply reusing photos and instead create original artwork for its products. The quality of work on these plates is variable but some are certainly worth more than others. A complete set of all twelve plates may cost up to $10,000 depending on how many imperfect plates there are in the set.
Another rare series is the Presidential series. Only five sets of these plates have ever been discovered, making them very rare items. Each set is composed of eight plates, one for each term served by George Washington. They were first issued in 1892 and remained popular until 1916 when they were replaced by another series called the Standard Plate Series. The price of a complete set on eBay currently ranges from $3,500 to $7,000 depending on which president's term it covers.
Prices might vary based on the piece's age, color, design, and condition. A whole set of dishes or an unique vase may cost $1,000 or more, yet a set of plates or saucers may only cost a few hundred dollars. Value is in the eye of the beholder.

Collector plates were a popular market many decades ago, when many people bought them as investments as well as aesthetic items. According to an Allentown Morning Call interview with antiques expert Harry Rinker, most collector plates are now worth 15% to 25% of their original purchase price. Some experts say this is a conservative estimate.
Commemorative plates are still produced today in large quantities for sale to the public. Although they are not considered investment-grade assets, some collectors may pay more for them than others might. Commemorative plates feature famous people, events, and places around the world. Many commemoratives sell for prices far above their actual value because they are rare or because they come with a high demand due to their status as collectors' items.
There are several companies that produce commemorative plates. Most use cheap materials to manufacture these products because they cannot afford to spend much money on them. This means that they will not last long if taken care of properly. However, some companies do make plates that are designed to look old and weathered which helps them sell for more.
Commemorative plates used to be sold only in specialty shops but now can be found at grocery stores, discount retailers, and even convenience stores across the country. They usually carry prices that are less than $10,000 but can go up to $150,000 or more.
