WAR RELATED COLLECTOR PLATES 

We have obtained a collection of plates featuring WW II art works by noted artists David Craig and Heinz Kreb.

These are tributes to the men and women who fought and participated in the Second World War.

David Craig

Artist David Craig, a highly acclaimed Canadian illustrator has always enjoyed communicating through art. As a young person growing up in Ottawa Ontario, Craig developed his keen fascination with the depiction of Canadian history. As a professional artist he has had many opportunities to further hone this unique talent. Craig has designed several coins for the Canadian Mint including the sesquicentennial silver dollar. He has also created a series of paintings commemorating Canada’s contribution during World War II. Such projects have allowed Craig to develop his own unique style typified by bold colour combinations.

Each work of the "Canada Remembers" series of paintings is named with a  part from the Canadian National Anthem and of the 10 plates these virtually provide the words to all of the Canadian National Anthem. Each plate has a multitude of images from various military operations and numerous branches of the Canadian Military. Each plate is beautifully decorated with gold trimmed rims and gold maple leaves around the rims.

Heinz Krebb

Heinz Krebs was raised and lives in Southern Germany where he spends most of his free time either flying or painting.
He is a passionate aviator, a commercial and test pilot, as well as a flying instructor with more than 10,000 hours of flying time and almost 22,000 landings to his credit. Heinz has flown 81 different types of powered aircraft ranging from Piper Cubs to jet fighters and 39 different glider aircraft models. But all his life he has had one other love besides his flying - fine arts, especially painting in oils.
What makes his aviation art so unique is that, being able to draw on his life-long experience of both subjects, Heinz is able to convey true portraits of flight full of romance, action, and drama.

His originals, limited fine art print editions, and other high quality collector's items are sought after all over the world. Heinz's fine art print editions have been authenticated and further enhanced by the personal signatures of many of the world's most historically significant aviators. This artist has been blessed with a stunning natural talent, his ability is simply breathtaking. The one thing, however, which has always fascinated the early bird Heinz Krebs was to combine his two most-loved activities in life, and create: Aviation Art.

The plates we have on sale are Tributes to WW II Heroes and were commisioned for the 50th Anniversary of WW II. The rims are decorated with the USA stars.
