A vintage Pendelfin figurine, "Dandy", a rabbit barber styling the coif of a young child bunny rabbit.

A nice duo, anthropomorphic rabbits of ceramic stonecraft, the larger bunny wearing blue pants with a pocketful of combs and barber scissors, while brushing the hair (ears?) of the little bunny who is draped in a smock of blue petalled daisies on pale yellow.

The back of the smock around the little bunny's neck is marked "DNR" (Doreen Noel Roberts) and "MADE IN ENGLAND".

The original foil sticker upon the base states: "MADE IN BURNLEY ENGLAND".

Made in the 1980s (1981).

These fanciful anthropomorphized rabbit figurines came from the lively imaginations of artists Jeannie Todd and Jean Walmsley Heap. Production of these figurines began in the 1950s. The primary designer of these Pendelfin rabbit figurines, Jean Walmsley Heap, passed away in 2008 and the production of Pendelfin from England virtually ceased. This item is an example of work produced in England under the Pendelfin name before production of these was moved overseas.

About 4.5" high.

In excellent condition.
