I was super excited to find today’s little bunny who forms part of the famous SylvaC family of rabbits, produced from the 1930s all the way through to the ’70s. British pottery house, SylvaC, made all manner of rabbits, from lop-eared bunnies and Harry the Hare, to today’s famous snub-nosed version, which with its matte glaze most people date to the earlier art deco period. SylvaC bunnies are super collectible and sell for anything from R500 upwards online, with today’s bunny on occasion going for as much as a whopping R2000! Fortunately our little guy is a bit more affordable than that!
Note: Unfortunately the thick glaze has covered the SylvaC maker’s mark, but you can just make out the ‘Made in England’ stamp. I have no doubt that this is an original SylvaC piece. Also please note the wear to the glaze on the one ear – see photos
