The Springtime Rabbit

2016-01-26_1543

We are delighted to celebrate the New Year with our limited edition Springtime Rabbit Paperweight, new for 2016 and available in a limited edition of just 300, priced at £110.00.

Crafted exclusively for Museum Selection, this fine bone china design is made in England by Royal Crown Derby; each piece being numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

A ROYAL SEAL OF APPROVAL

Royal Crown Derby has a heritage dating back to 1750 and King George III first granted the factory the rare honour of being able to incorporate a crown into the back stamp in 1775. Queen Victoria also gave Crown Derby her seal of approval by awarding the Royal Warrant and granting the title ‘The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company’.

250 YEARS OF CRAFTSMANSHIP

Standing 3" tall, the Springtime Rabbit is crafted using techniques perfected over 250 years and uses the original shape modelled in 1981 by Robert Jefferson. This model forms a template for the ‘slip’ moulds, which are then cast and fired to produce hard, white fine bone china. Reflecting the season, the fresh palette has been carefully reimagined by experts in the Royal Crown Derby design studio from an original Tien Manh Dinh design and is finished with hand gilding in 22ct gold.
