Dating from the nineteenth century, this adorable terracotta bunny with white glaze and blue glass eyes was made by the celebrated potters of the Mesnil de Bavent, Normandy. The pottery of Mesnil de Bavent in Normandy has been awarded and recognized by France as an "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant", a title that highlights its long-standing heritage and devotion to its craft. This bunny would be a delightful decoration to an Easter table or as a special gift for a child's bedroom.
