    I got this about 20 years ago at a barn sale for $15.00 . Believe it is birch. Was told it was for rising yeast dough. Not an antique, metal label says 1980. However, I love the thing, and it never fails to catch a visitor's eye.
    It still makes me smile. while I do bake bread, I have never used it for the intended purpose.

      What a gorgeous rabbit item, very unique

      I have this one and also a smaller, slightly different version. It was made for/by Arthur Court Designs and is in their large coffee table book. I keep assorted size screw drivers in mine....

      I don't think it is birch. I think it was made in Indonesia from some SE Asian wood... I don't remember what I found out about these in my research. I have had mine for a long time, too....

      I have the Arthur Court coffee table book, but I don't think it says anything about what these were for. I will dig it out and take a look. I bought it as part of my research into these wooden boxes....

      Carved in the town of Piete in the Philippines for use as jewelry boxes, according to the book. There were much larger, solid pieces from the same wood used as bases for glass topped tables.

      Wish I'd discovered this site years ago! Learn so much from all of you, thank you!

      Angus, this is thee best place for learning and so much fun too. I've had things for years and have shown them here and they ended up being completely different than what I thought they were, and many times, much better too! Anyway, it's a cute rabbit and as long as it's making you smile, that's what counts at the end of the day.
