Early Bunnykins [sold]

Bunnykins plate [1939]Early Bunnykins plate
made in England, 1939

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.

Bunnykins porridge bowl

Bunnykins porridge bowl, Mr Piggly's storeRoyal Doulton ‘Bunnykins’ porridge bowl
made in England, c.1940s

Bunnykins pottery is very collectible, and I have resisted collecting any to date- having grown up eating from these plates and drinking from Bunnykins mugs [and even, I confess allowing my own child to sup from Bunnykins pottery]- until I found a fantastic Santa Claus porridge bowl- and sort of got hooked.

This porridge bowl is from the 40s and shows Mr Piggly’s Store; Mr Piggly is serving Mrs Rabbit with her two children with a box of Piglett Carrots nearby. The scene has a little wear and tear [zoom in on image to see] but the running bunnies around the edge are in good order.

The bowl isn’t signed by Barbara Vernon- which adds to its value- but it is rare- and the Mr Piggly scene is wonderful.

Christmas Bunnykins [sold]

Bunnikins Christmas porridge bowlRoyal Doulton ‘Bunnykins’ Santa Claus porridge bowl
made in England, c.1940s

Bunnykins pottery is very collectible, and I have resisted collecting any to date- having grown up eating from these plates and drinking from Bunnykins mugs [and even, I confess allowing my own child to sup from Bunnykins pottery]- until I found this fantastic Santa Claus porridge bowl.

The running bunnies around the rim are worn- attesting to much use [obviously the bowl wasn’t just bought out for Christmas.] And I love the graphic- Santa Bunny, with his labelled sack [in case you mistook him for some ordinary bunny] and the bunny in bed- with one eye open- in on the joke.

The bowl isn’t signed by Barbara Vernon- which adds to its value- but it is rare- and the Santa scene is wonderful.
