No Reserve Royal Doulton "fireman Bunnykins"colorway Figurine Db183 For Sale
Royal Doulton "Fireman Bunnykins" Figurine Style One, Second Variation DB183 From
top porcelain and collectibles manufacturer Royal Doulton comes Bunnykins, one
of the most beloved children's lines ever created. First
conceived from drawings and sketches done by English nun Barbara Vernon who used thelovablebunny characters to entertain her students in her classroom; her designs were eventually passed on to Royal Doulton through her father and thought perfect for a new nursery ware line they wanted to launch. In 1934 the first Bunnykins tableware items were created and within five years a figurine line was made to capitalize on the popularity of the bunnies. But WWII would end production of Bunnykins and it would be the 1970's before Royal Doulton revisited it again. Famed modeler Albert Hallam was charged with recreating the Bunnykins figurine line which began with nine new figurines; these were the start of the DB number series. Since then more than 380
figurines have been created. The line has continued to evolve since
its inception, and the 1980's in particular saw a bold move by Royal Doulton to widen the Bunnykins market to include adults as well as children with the creation of sports Bunnykins figures and other
figurines directly aimed at the older collector market. As with most Royal Doulton collectibles, Bunnykins has established a strong following and has remained one of their most popular series to date. Up for offer is this fantastic Bunnykins figurine titled "Fireman Bunnykins" DB183. He was commissioned by Pascoe and Company, Coral Gables, Florida, USA in a special edition of 3500, this is number 559.He was designed by Graham Tongue and modeled by Martyn Alcock.
