We were lucky to purchase a nice set of majolica rabbit plates and mugs. These are made by the french firm Choisy-le-Roi around 1900 (and are marked accordingly), and subsequently sold by the well-known Higgins & Seiter china and glass store in New York City (back stamped). They display rabbits, young and adult, in a wide-range of different natural poses, grazing on radishes and cabbages, hopping around, and fleeing some unknown threat. The plates came in six different designs, shown in the second picture; and the mugs featured a single style, although they sport an impressive rabbit handle. So fun....
