Andrew Tanner plates

Recently I have toyed with the idea of collecting plates, to hang on a wall in my kitchen. There would be a huge mental barrier to overcome, as my mother went a bit crazy with buying decorative plates in the 1990s - and she keeps asking us every time we go home which of the designs we want to inherit (answer: none - I'm not into country scenes, dogs, or horses.) She thinks they will have appreciated in value, but I am not that convinced by her investment strategy.


Anyway, so far I have two lovely plates, not quite enough to call them a collection or feel I have committed to the idea. But I am tempted by some of the plates I see around, like these Andrew Tanner plates. Not that surprisingly, my favourite is the one with the birds.

Ha ha! I admit that I shuddered when you mentioned collection plates. I involuntarily picture country scenes and frolicking dogs as well. But these plates are so amazing that I can totally see the point of a collection!

These are way better than "collectible" plates. I don't envy your situation with inheritance of them!
