This Benjamin Bunny charm is from the now-retired Beatrix Potter collection made by Hand & Hammer (H&H) Silversmiths. The charm is beautifully molded with great proportions and detail. It's a hard-to-find charm of lovely quality, and is in excellent vintage condition. Hand & Hammer made the Beatrix Potter collection in the early 1990s, which included charms for over 20 different characters. The most popular charm is Peter Rabbit in the Watering Can. Many of the other charms are characters from some of her lesser known works, and are often very difficult to find. This charm represents 'The Tale of Benjamin Bunny', published in 1904. This book is a sequel to 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' (1902), and tells of Peter's return to Mr. McGregor's garden with his cousin Benjamin to retrieve the clothes he lost there during his previous adventure.
The charm is unmarked for silver content, but is guaranteed to be sterling. It has its original hang tag with STG and an 'H' in an oval on one side, and 'FW CO' for Frederick Warne & Company on the other. They were Miss Potter's publisher. Upon her death she left the rights to all her works to Frederick Warne & Co (now owned by Penguin), and they granted H&H a license to make this charm series.
This charm is in excellent condition. The hang tag is a bit tarnished and hard to read.
In the last photo the charm is shown next to a dime for scale.
