Bunnykins – made by Royal Doulton- are now highly collectable. I put it down to nostalgia.
Bunnykins plates, cups, and bowls – as endorsed by the Royal Family [Princess Margaret ate her cereal from a Bunnykins bowl- hence ROYAL Doulton] – was made from 1937 to 1953.
This plate has the earliest backstamp, and is impressed with ‘9.39’- which is a date stamp: September, 1939.
The plate has a mild yellow tint from age: but the transfer print of Mrs and Mr Bunny at table with their two children [one unfortunately ascribed as baby] – and the running rabbits around the plate are all intact. Add to this that the image has Barbara Vernon’s signature – this is a collectable piece.
The Bunnykins plate is for sale: $AU35
