Even though I'm not a folk art buff, I do agree. Would love to have the big white rabbit. Do you think he is made of cast iron?

I looked at this last night and it made me smile and when I looked once again this morning, the same. I want to get closer and to touch. What a lovely gathering of fine pieces.
You always find the really special visuals to catch our gaze.
many thanks
Linda

JudyMac...I found the original article and this is what it says about the rabbit:
The rabbit is one of many carved or chalkware figures around the house; it keeps company with a wooden turtle and an exceptional sgrafitto plate decorated with three tulips and attributed to George Hubener;
it is dated September 10, 1785.
Email me directly and I'll send you the PDF of the article. It's amazing.

I really like the rabbit. And that cupboard--it appears to be a "built-in".....oh, I adore that. It's beautiful!

Sue...I love the old cupboard that was built-in too. Those people really how to know how to make the most of their deep pockets, don't they?
