    Hello everyone!!
    Here's another of my Harrison Cady Peter Rabbits. This one is full bodied and made of cast iron. It's hollow, but quite heavy. I've always liked the Beatrix Potter version of Peter Rabbit, but this Harrison Cady version of Peter Rabbit is my absolute favorite. Harrison Cady illustrated his early 1900's version as a very jolly looking Peter Rabbit in all of the Thornton W. Burgess children's books. This one measures approximately 9" tall, 4 7/8" wide and 5 7/8" front to back and weighs about 8lbs

    Thanks for stopping in for a look at Peter Rabbit!!
    Scott

      He's totally adorable, from those eyes to his chubby body, what a fabulous Peter and his colors are perfect!

      Jenni,
      Thanks so very much!! I have collected several of these Peter Rabbits over the years, from cast iron, paper Mache', cast aluminum and composite. All of them slightly different in color from one another.

      As a great fan of Thornton W. Burgess, how can I not love this Peter Rabbit!
      Scott, when are you going to delight us with an Unc. Billy Possum statue? Did they even make toys and such to go with these wonderful books? ( with all that’s happening with books and such, ( Dr. Suess, Pepe La Pew) No one better ever attack these books! They are a child’s wonderland of reading!)

      Eileen,
      Thank you so much!! The only Uncle Billy Possum toy, that I've ever been aware of, was produced in Germany by Steiff back in the early 1990's. I don't have one, mainly because they command such a high price. Maybe one day though.
