Adorable pair of vintage porcelain White Rabbit Candle Holders made by AVON, one in 1980, the other in 1981, but the two are almost identical and look fabulous displayed together. Both Albino rabbits are all white with handpainted, realistic looking pink noses, pink shading inside ears, and pink eyes. Both have candle cups with votive candles that have not been burned; one candle is pink, the other yellow. Both candle cups have molded relief Pansy flowers and are trimmed with a green band around the top.
The tallest rabbit is measures 5-1/2" tall and holds his 2-1/4" wide candle cup up, slightly over his head. The smaller rabbit measures 5" tall and sits beside his 2-1/4" wide candle cup which is molded to resemble a woven basket.
Both white rabbits are in excellent to mint condition with no chips, discoloration, cracks, crazing, or loss of color on features and have a smooth, clean, glossy finish.
The smaller, sitting rabbit is marked, "AVON 1980, All Rights Reserved" and has a gold foil label reading, "Hand Painted in Brazil, Exclusively for Avon Products, Inc."
The taller rabbit is marked, "AVON 1981" and has a gold foil label reading, "Hand Painted, Made in Brazil" and "WEISS".
This sweet pair of bunnies are sure to bring smiles!
