Mr Jeremy Fisher Collectibles

It's not just her books that are collector's items, as sketches too fetch incredible prices. In 2003, for example, two of her early water colors were sold for more than £40,000 at Bonhams, New Bond Street, London. The pictures showing snow scenes with two rabbits wearing blue and red jackets are thought to have been painted in 1892 or 1893 but were never published.

 That same year, a visitor to the Antiques Roadshow was astounded to discover their collection of 23 Beatrix Potter drawings and water colors was valued at £250,000. The owner's grandfather had connections with   Beatrix Potter's brother. Many of the pictures pre-dated Peter Rabbit, and some were only half finished, which nevertheless didn't make them any less interesting.

For more modestly priced items, there's a huge range of Jeremy Fisher items to be collected in everything from silver to ceramics to soft fabrics.
