Early pieces sometimes have the green royal doulton stamp as well as shown here during 1930's and 40's.Very early examples from 1934-37 may just have the royal doulton stamp on its own with a small number next to it, or just the word "bunnykins" below it.Its products include dinnerware, giftware, cookware, porcelain, glassware, collectables, jewellery, linens, curtains and lighting.Three of its brands were Royal Doulton, Royal Albert and Mintons.These brands are now owned by WWRD Holdings Ltd (Waterford Crystal, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton), based in Barlaston near Stoke-on-Trent.On 2 July 2015 the acquisition of WWRD by the Fiskars Corporation was completed.
This HN number refers to artist/designer Harry Nixon of Royal Doulton.
I collect royal doulton bunnykins tableware, and initially when I began collecting, I had trouble trying to determine when a piece dated from and telling whether it was an early, or a later piece.
That is why I thought this guide may be helpful to others in dating bunnykins tableware.
Harry Nixon was an artist in charge of painting the figures.
Other artists included John Sparkes, George Tinsworth, Arthur Barlow, and Agnete Hoy among others.
