Another bronze rabbit from my collection. This one is solid bronze and the woven brass baskets are all original to this rabbit. I've been told that Old German folklore has it that if you hung these little baskets on your Easter tree, the night before Easter, they would find candy in them on Easter Morning. So, that must be how the Easter Basket, that we know so well today, came to be.
This bronze rabbit measures about 8 1/4" tall . I'm told that this is a German made rabbit and from the Edwardian period.
Thanks to all for stopping in for a look!!
