80th Anniversary of Royal Doulton Bunnykins

Posted by TimelyTipster - April 9, 2014

Royal Doulton is celebrating the 80th Anniversary of its Bunnykins Dinnerware.

Introduced in 1934, Bunnykins is attributed to Cuthbert Bailey and Barbara Vernon.  Cuthbert was head of the Royal Doulton factory and his daughter Barbara drew the original Bunnykins illustrations.  She drew from her imagination and memories of her own childhood.  The little characters in the scenes of everyday life were originally intended to amuse the schoolchildren she taught.  But her father Cuthbert recognized the commercial opportunity and commissioned her paintings for a line of nursery ware.

Bunnykins tableware depicts Mr. and Mrs. Bunnykins and other rabbits dressed in human clothing, in colorful rural and small-town English scenes, transfer-printed on white china.
