Hello Everyone!!

Back to the rabbits again. This is a velour, or velvet type material, covered rabbit. This one is evidently from France, due to the French advertisement that is glued to his wicker basket. I don't know the true age on this one.

Thanks to our CW friend kyratango, I now know what this advertisement is for. It advertises the shops were the stuff presented in the basket could be bought. It says too "home delivery available from 5 francs".

He stands about 12" to 14" tall and has glass eyes. Not sure what drew me to this one, but I've had him for nearly two years now. He's been stashed away in a trunk and I had nearly forgotten him.

Thanks for stopping in to have a look!!

Scott

    That is a great rabbit. Do not see many advertising rabbits for realty francais. Definitely looks vintage.

    Thanks fortapache!! I thought he looked vintage when I got a couple of years back, but I'm really not sure if he is.

    Rick ,
    Thanks friend!! He caught my eye when I saw him and when I saw the vintage business advertisement on his basket, I knew I had to have him!!

    Great rabbit, Scott!!!
    Just a correction... The advertisement is not for a realtor! "maisons de vente" is not the same as "maisons à vendre" aka selling places isn't the same as places to sell ;-)
    It advertises the shops were the stuff presented in the basket could be bought.
    It says too "home delivery available from 5 francs"

    Kyra,
    Thanks very much for clearing that one up. I really shouldn't rely on Google for translations. That's very cool to know. That's what I love about CW!!

    You're very welcome, Scott :-)
