Sam Butcher began drawing beautiful children over twenty-five years ago. He named his drawings “Precious Moments”, and their charm caught on like wildfire. Initially, the Precious Moments® children were only produced on cards and posters. When Sam Butcher and his partner took their artwork to a convention, retailers began swarming around to get a closer look. Eventually, the Enesco® Company offered to bring the drawings to life by producing figurines. The Precious Moments® figurines were born. The first was entitled “Love One Another”. This was the first Precious Moment figurine shown to Sam Butcher by Enesco®, and he was so overwhelmed that he agreed to let them begin producing the entire line. The figurines becaame a popular collector’s item. Each year, the figurines are represented by a different symbol on the bottom so that collectors can easily identify their year of production. The first year Precious Moments® figurines were created was in 1981, and the symbol for that particular year was a triangle. In 2005, a new chapter in the Precious Moments® story began, as the collection “came home” to join the rest of the Precious Moments® family at Precious Moments, Incorporated. Today, the Precious Moments® line is still going strong. There are several collectors’ clubs that participate with Precious Moments® figurines, and who keep up with their own existing collections. Each of the Precious Moments® figurines are beautifully crafted and painted in lovely pastel colors. Every figurine has its own theme and title. Precious Moments® figurines make a lovely, memorable gift for children and adults of all ages and are sure to touch the heart. Precious Moments Christmas pieces and the Precious Moments nativity are especially endearing.
