This is just the sweetest little fellow. Even though he has a slight crack running down his back, I just couldn’t resist.

Hornsea ‘Hoppy’ Bunny

Love this multifunctional little chap. Would either use him as a toothpick holder, a bud vase, or to store kiddies toothbrushes in the bathroom. Part of the Fauna range by Hornsea, very collectable.

Large Porcelain Leopard Cub – SOLD

15 Apr

This ‘not so little’ fella just takes my breath away. His markings and details are just fantastic and he is a great alternative to using taxidermy in your decor (which is becoming hugely popular). Unfortunately his markings are smudged, so cant date or find any info on him. (Alco?? Portugal) Saying that, he would make an exceptional statement piece in someones home.

Paul Sebastian Boy on Rocking Horse – SOLD

15 Apr

Knew this was a pretty modern porcelain piece when I bought him…but thought he was too precious to pass up. Then did a bit of research and found out he is collectable with some value, designed in 1991 by Paul Sebastian. He looks like he is falling off the one side of the rocking horse, thought it may have been a flaw but the few I have seen in pics look to be the same.
