1. Hoppy Bunny and Friends is an Easter set. Hoppy is 3 1/4 inches long x 3 inches tall (to the tip of his ears). He is made of German shulte mohair that has been hand painted with several layers of permanent heat-set paints, for a realistic look. He is filled with excelsior and steel shot and has German amber glass eyes, an embroidered face and nylon wiskers.
Hoppy is simply decorated with a white organza ribbon decorated with a posy of tiny pink and purple flowers, around the neck. He is mounted on off-set pewter wheels, so he hops when he is pulled. He comes with a tiny pink and white, chennile chick and a chalkware bunny (2 3/4" tall) that is made from one of my antique bunny molds. He is carefully painted with acrylic paints and sealed with several coats of varnish. The bunny comes in a purple shaker style collector box, decorated with a reproduction vintage bunny picture. The basket in the photo is sprinkled with glitter. The bunny is signed and the set will also come with a signed hang-tag.
2. Tuppence and Her Chick - Tuppence is 5 inches tall and made from hand-dyed golden brown, German mohair, that has been extensively aged, leaving a few bald spots. She has German glass eyes, lightly waxed nose and is stuffed with excelsior and steel shot and granulate for weight. Her ears, face and paws have been shaded for a vintage look and her leather paw pads have been distressed, leaving tiny holes for the excelsior to show through. Tuppence wears a hand made dress, designed from a vintage hanky, with embroidered roses on the bodice. She comes with her friend, a delightful feather chick. She will come with a signed hang-tag.
