lots of hornsea bunnies and an imposter ...
This is my collection of bunnies and one imposter, can you spot him? All came from either an antiques fair or fleamarket. I have had these as part of my vast collection of all things vintage for many years now. They were made by Hornsea Pottery and from their red clay range, and were produced in the 1950s, I love them but not many can, as today they sell for very little money, which always surprises me. You may have had a glazed example very similar to one of these which were very popular in the 1960s/70s, I had one, but like a lot of my childhood things I threw away when I left home at the age of 21 to set up my own home, at the time I wasn't interested in taking this sort of thing with me.
Sadly a few years back Hornsea Pottery fell into the hands of the liquidators, so yet another pottery closes its doors for good. I am not particularly a big fan of the work of Hornsea, but I do love these bunnies, not just for Easter but for life!
