HISTORY OF PRECIOUS MOMENTS
As written inThe 1999 Thirteenth Edition Genuine & Original Greenbook Guide to Precious Moments by Enesco: "Sam Butcher, the artist and creator of Precious Moments, first began his career as a 'chalk board minister,' using illustrations to teach young children about God."
"In 1974, Sam partnered with a friend, William Biel, to start the 'Jonathan & David' inspirational greeting card business that featured the teardrop-eyed children he had been drawing for family and friends. He called them 'Precious Moments' because they spread love, caring and sharing in everyday situations. The Card Company was the first step toward success for the artist and his Precious Moments illustrations."
"It was in 1978 that Enesco Corporation President Eugene Freedman first saw Sam's simple drawings on a small line of greeting cards and posters....When Gene called Sam and Bill, they were initially reluctant to talk to him, as they were hoping to have the artwork made into porcelain themselves...."
"Mr. Freedman took the artwork to Japan to his friend, Master Sculptor Yasuhei Fujioka, and with his creative genius, Fujioka-san transformed the illustrations into figurines...."
"In the fall of 1978, the first 21 porcelain bisque figurines, each one handcrafted and individually painted, were introduced on the market....The Precious Moments Collection by Enesco is now the number one collectible in the country and numbers more than 1,500 subjects for every occasion and every sentiment."
"....The drawings are sent to the Precious Moments Design Studio in Nagoya, Japan, where a team of highly skilled artisans translates the art into a finely sculptured clay model."
"It requires five to seven days to produce a single Precious Moments figurine. Each artisan is extensively trained from the sculptor to the painter, who takes three years to master the famous teardrop eyes--considered to be the most important and most difficult element of the figurine. It's this attention to detail and quality that has kept the Precious Moments Collection so highly valued by collectors and so true to Sam's original artwork."
"The three founding 'fathers' of the Collection, Sam, Gene, and Fujioko-san, are loyal to the integrity of the Collection and their belief in living the Precious Moments motto of 'Loving, Caring, and Sharing.' Whatever the occasion, the Precious Moments Collection expresses a heartfelt sentiment without saying a word. Collectors have found joy in both giving and receiving Precious Moments figurines."
