A little history follows: Barbara Vernon Bailey, born 1910 loved to draw pictures of rabbits. When her father Cuthbert Bailey, who was managing director of Royal Doulton,decided to introduce a new line of children's nurseryware in 1934, he turned to his daughter for illustrations. By this time, Barbara had joined a convent in Sussex and was now Sister Mary Barbara. Permission was granted by the prioress on the condition that no profit was to be made for either the artist or the convent. Barbara turned out dozens of whimsical sketches depicting rabbits gardening, dancing, cooking and bathing. The centerpiece was 'Mr. Rabbit' who bore a distinct likeness to her father with round glasses and puffing a pipe. Barbara ceased drawing and her designs had been withdrawn by 1952, but other designers continued in her tradition. Barbara Vernon died in 2003 at the age of 92. It is these pre 1950's designs, especially those that carry her signature that are most in demand today.
