  • Pattern: Bunnykins – Airmail Delivery
  • Made in England 
  • Vintage: 1934 – 2005
  • Details:  One of the finest child dinnerware sets ever made, the Bunnykins by Royal Doulton are highly collectible and cherished.  Originally made based on drawings made by Sister Mary Barbara Bailey, from 1934 until 1950, later continued by various artists at Royal Doulton.  If you ever find a piece signed “Barbara Vernon”, it would be an extremely rare find and a real treasure.  We can’t confirm the date on this plate, even though it is marked 1936, the Bunnykins tableware continued to be produced in England until 2005.   All newer china pieces in this pattern are made in Asia, this one is marked “England”.  This design is called “Airmail Delivery” it’s a rare find, (currently selling on Replacements for $229 plus shipping).  It is stamped on the back with the Royal Doulton logo used starting in 1932, plus: “English Fine Bone China, Bunnykins, 1936 Royal Doulton U.K.”  If you collect this pattern, we hope this find brings you joy.  This makes a wonderful Baby Shower gift, and a really cute addition as part of a nursery decor!

Royal Doulton, a name synonymous with the finest English china across the world, was started in London, England by John Doulton, John Watts and Martha Jones, in 1815.  (Originally called “Jones, Watts and Doulton”).  In 1820, Martha left the company and in 1826 the name was changed to “Doulton & Watts”.  John Watts retired from the company in 1854 which by then was called ‘Doulton & Company‘. In 1873 when John Doulton passed away his son, Henry, who has been working alongside his father, took over the company.  They were becoming very well known and the Queen took notice.  In 1887, Queen Victoria knighted Henry Doulton for his contributions to the ceramic art and then later in 1901 King Edwards VII gave the company a Royal Warrant. From this Royal Warrant the company was then able to trade as ‘Royal Doulton‘, the name we all know today.  Royal Doulton is no longer a family owned business, they merged with Minton in 1968, acquiring Royal Albert from the merger with AEP in 1971. And, in 2005, all became part of the Waterford Wedgwood group.
