Royal Doulton "Bunnykins" Plate - PREVIOUSLY $20 - BEST OFFER

This is an 8" plate made by Royal Daulton for its "Bunnykins" line of children's dinnerware. Sister Mary Barbara Vernon was the original Bunnykins artist. She was the daughter of Cuthbert Bailey who worked for the Doulton company and who asked her as a favor to produce some drawings that would appeal to young children. At night in the convent, in the 1930s, Mary would sketch the bunny scenes for her father by candlelight as there was no electricity. The father bunnies were often a depiction of her father, as she drew them holding a pipe and wearing braces, as her own father did. This design, Family in the Garden, was a design of Barbara's. Later, changes were made by Walter Hayward prior to production in the 1960s. The plate was made between 1968 and 1975.

P.S. Keep in mind that you can find lovely gifts for the holidays, birthdays or any gift giving occasion on VarageSale.
