On a cold day, the ice in halald, 95, December 18, told workers that breaking the mold was used to produce blue and white plates running.By breaking this mold, the specific plate can no longer be produced.This is how the first known limited edition "collector board" appears.
This was done by Bing and Grondahl in Denmark.The plate is called "frozen behind the window" and sold the new one for 50 cents.This is also the first known Collection board with a production date and title on the back.
Mint specimens on this plate are now worth $6,000.00 and $8,000.00.In 1896, Bing and Grondahl produced the first Christmas collector plate called "Jule Aften 1896.Since then, they have made one every year, so the phenomenon of "collector plates" is born.
In 1987, Bing and Grondahl merged with the Royal Copenhagen porcelain factory to continue producing their Christmas plates.The full set of these plates today is worth tens of thousands of dollars.After 1910 to WW ll, other European companies such as Rosenthal, Konigliche and many others started making their own Christmas plates.
So far, the United States has imported more than 1950 limited edition license plates and sold them through auctions and some dealers.As the market starts to grow, more and more companies are starting to send limited edition plates to the United States, and in the United States, limited edition plates (usually under 500 plates) are sold out soon.Demand for these boards began to rise sharply, creating a real market for collecting boards.
in early 1970.
Roderick MacArthur has the idea of organizing these collectors to buy and sell plates.He did so over the phone on the stock market's mind, so The Bradford Exchange was established.At the age of 1980, Bradford was computerized with more than 10,000 transactions per day.
During this period, the demand for these plates has grown to the extent that sellers not only start offering Christmas plates, but also start offering year-round plates with children, birds, celebrities and other topics as the theme.As the number of plates increases, the number of plate manufacturers is also increasing.Around this time, the first collections from China and Russia entered the US market and were immediately welcomed.
These plates are usually made from works by Rockwell, Cork, Zuora and other well-known artists.These small plates were sold out soon, and they were no longer sold out.Due to this fact, the secondary market came into being as collectors wanted a complete set of plates and were willing to pay for them.
These out-of-Production boards are only available through dealers, auctions, Bradford exchanges or second-hand stores.From the middle of 1970 to the beginning of the 1990 s, prices changed every day and were very volatile --I think the baby Bean is in the golden age, but the sales volume is slightly lower.After mid-1990, the market fell sharply.This is largely up to the seller to decide that the limited plates are no longer 250 or 500, but the limited plates now mean 15,000, and in many cases, more than that.
This saturates the market and kills demand for a real limited edition, so it's hard to find plates.This brings us into today's market.Almost a month has passed and we have not heard from the eager new collector who has just inherited/Purchased/obtained a complete set of Bradford plates.These plates have boxes and certificates and they are over 15 years old.
Because of these facts, our fledgling collector knows that her or his retirement is guaranteed.They just wanted us to tell him how many thousand dollars this collection of fine collectible cutlery really costs.The news we send to them is not what they want to hear.
In today's market, the vast majority of these types of plates for over-production, reduced buyer interest, increased competition between sellers (eBay) and poor economy are hardly worth anything.In the foreseeable future, the only entity that makes big money on these plates or makes big money forever is the original retail seller --i.e.Bradford Exchange, etc.These companies are not as good Chinese suppliers as they used to be.
In terms of past performance, they are now just sellers of investment scams that will not appreciate, but will become almost worthless once purchased.Bradford's marketing of these and other plates will convince people that they are limited edition plates, and because of this, their prices will rise.There is nothing more distant than truth.The "limited edition" run time for these plates is now usually 150 (or longer) days.
If the seller produces only 100 plates a day, then there are still 15,000 plates.On The Bradford Exchange website, the 2011 Christmas version of the plate "is limited to the 2011 production year ".This means that the board will be put into production throughout 2011.
Your guess is as good as mine as how many plates will end up, but you can bet it will be a bunch.Remember, you can't evaluate the value of these plates based on their initial selling price or the requirements of the online website.You have to value them through what they really sell today.
For these sectors, eBay is a good indicator of the cash market.Let's take a look at the 1995 Bradford Norman Rockwell plate apprentice.The online store has stock of this plate, priced from $25.
00 to $75.
00 to 11/8/11.
My search for eBay shows that a total of 12 auctions were completed on 11/8/11, all without sales.The minimum starting price is $7.88 Without bidThe search also showed that there were 15 active auctions on eBay as of 11/8/11, with the lowest price of $6.95.There is no bid for all these auctions.Both sets of eBay auctions are not interested in these plates.
The small number of people watching these auctions indicates this.Most eBay auction pages have found counters on the site, so it's easy to judge interest.I then searched again on eBay for the phrase Bradford Plates.
I found 5,099 public auctions and 8,739 completed auctions.This is the 13,838 Bradford plates that have just been sold on eBay or are being sold.This is a lot of plates.Of the first 200 properties completed, only 23 were sold.
Two of the plates sold are Winnie the Pooh plates for $25.The other 21 plates cost $0.01 to $12.95.This is an 11.With a sales rate of 5%, the vast majority of plates sold cost less than $7.00.None of these plates had an original purchase price of $30.
This is not to say that some collection boards will not appreciate in value --Some will.However, mass-produced plates of mass-marketing type will certainly not.In fact, if you don't buy them cheaply enough, you will lose a lot of money at the moment you buy them.
In most cases, the purchase price is $1.
00 to $2.
00 it should give you a small profit when you try to sell a plate.However, this is not guaranteed as many of these plates will not have buyers for any price.If you buy them from the Bradford Exchange or elsewhere at the retail price of the ad, you are almost certain that your money will be completely lost.
Sorry guys, these are tough but real facts in the wonderful world of limited edition tablet collections.The best advice I can give to any dealer is if you're not sure what the item you're going to buy will sell, then take the time to do your research before you buy.Don't believe anyone who tells you to buy anything for resale is certain and it won't be lost.
What they really mean is that if you accept the deal they offer, the person who sold it to you will not lose the deal.Always remember Mike T.Golden Rule of hammer-You can't buy high and sell low, hope to make up for it in quantity!
