Twelve plates made up the Bradford Exchange's Sarah Stilwell Weber Calendar Series, one for each month. They were made from 1985 through 1986 using International 7 ¼" blanks. The plates originally came with their own box, certificate of authenticity, and they retailed for roughly $20.00 each. Shown below are four examples.

The decal marking on the back promoted the plates as "Genuine Newellware" and being made at the Newell Pottery Company, a division of Edwin M. Knowles. The Knowles China company had closed twenty years prior. However, the Bradford Exchange had bought the rights to the name. In actuality, all twelve plates were made at the Homer Laughlin China Company in Newell, WV.

See the section on Norman Rockwell plates, also made for the Bradford Exchange.
