Friends of Peter Rabbit

Friends of Peter Rabbit



In 1987 Border Fine Arts created figurines and accessories depicting the popular Beatrix Potter characters from her books and illustrations. The World of Beatrix Potter collection initially comprised figurines but the range has grown to include musical boxes, picture frames, wall clocks, home and nurseryware as well as money banks and gardenware ensuring there’s something for all ages.

Since its inception the range has featured all the main characters from the Beatrix Potter books including: Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mrs. Rabbit, the Flopsy Bunnies and more.
