Amanda "Mouse" Quinn
While I've technically been collecting dragons for 8 years now, it is only in the last 2-3 years, when I got into the better pieces made by Enchantica, Dragonsite, Franklin Mint and Danbury Mint that the collection really began to take off. I have recently relaxed my collecting a little, though I still pick up a new piece now and then when one catches my eye.
I do have a few favourites. Generally, I'm very fond of the Enchantica Shannarah, Dragonflight, Bethor, Karaxus and Xedrethor. All the Danbury Mint dragons in my collection are among my favourites, as is the Dragonsite Vansal, Rob Simpson's Yeuaan, Franklin Mint Smaug and of course, the Franklin Mint Clash of the Time Lords.
The collection is housed all throughout my room, with the two glass cabinets,
shelves and bookcase (that should be dragoncase) as the main holders of the
(L-R); Franklin Mint Smaug (at back); Dragonsite Alhyme; Enchantica Shannarah;
Enchantica Mangra; Dragonsite Renaissance (at back).
(L-R); Enchantica Bethor; Enchantica Grymwarg (at back); Enchantica
Dragonflight; Enchantica Kellrass (at back); Enchantica Karaxus (second
(L-R); Enchantica Tzabazeus; Rob Simpson Yeuaan; Enchantica Jabel (at back);
Dragonsite Vansal; Andrew Bill Marauder; Enchantica Jaggerang (at back). At
front: small pewter dragon sitting on agate.
(L-R); Danbury Mint Slorn-Drambar; Enchantica Xedrethor; Danbury Mint
(L-R); Danbury Mint Verendi; Danbury Mint Draco; Enchantica Silverflame (small
blue dragon at front); Danbury Mint Droxtharg; Enchantica Shyira; Enchantica
Bloodstar (small white/ red dragon at front); Danbury Mint Kellentz.
A few more plush dragons, with some more statues (most off-camera) which
couldn't fit anywhere else in the room.
Some of my older dragons, from the early days. The two Tudor Mint Mountain
Dragons (left-hand side) from the "Land of the Dragons" range are the only
relatively well-known company represented here. My very first dragon is the
small green dragon sitting on the left side of the red/ orange dragon.
The bottom shelf contains the rest of the assorted dragons. The large green
dragon on the right-hand side of the shelf I'm quite fond of, and it is the only
cartoon-ish dragon I own. The purple dragon with the dragonfly on it's tail was
given as a Christmas present from my mum, who hand-made the gorgous piece. It's
much more friendly-looking than most of the other dragons in the collection, and
it's another one I like a lot.
At the top of the wardrobe reside my two largest dragons, with a smaller green
dragon in front. The base (crystals) of the green dragon actually light up when
plugged in, and the effect is really neat.
Despite the entire top of the bookcase being dominated with dragons, the books
manage to fit in in the shelves below! Again these are some of my older pieces,
with the Tudor Mint Ice Dragons from the "Land of the Dragons" in this picture,
and a Royal Selangor Imperial Dragon (on the right-hand side of the large blue
dragon). Next to the large green dragon and behind the pewter dragon with its
raised wings is another Tudor Mint piece, this is "The Great Sun Dragon" from
their "Myth & Magic" range.
