What a wonderful little "hug a mug" (or albion) baby cup (or even child or adult cup if you wish....)

Story: The Royal Doulton Company began in 1815, and introduced its Bunnykins line in 1934....and the story goes like this....the then General Manager, Cuthbert Bailey, asked his daughter Barbara Vernon Bailey if he could use her drawings (done as a young child) for a nursery series of china. She was at the time a cloistered nun! So it was necessary to gain her Mother Superior's permission to continue to submit drawings over the next years up to 1950 when she retired as the Bunnykins artist and others took her place. Mother Superior was not too happy about it but allowed the nun (then known as Sister Mary Barbara) to draw only after her teaching duties were over, at the end of the day, alone in her cell, by candlelight. But she produced the most beautiful tender pictures!

I am not really sure of the date that this cup was made...the backstamp reads "English Fine Bone China, Bunnykins and an R for Registered, C in a circle (for copyright) 1936 Royal Doulton". My research cautions that we cannot assume that this cup was produced in 1936 because this label was set on cups also from 1976 to 1987 and then again after 1993. But the shape of this cup (called albion or hug a mug) was introduced from 1979 onwards, and has a turned up lip.

This cup is in amazing shape...no apparent scratches, or chips...just lovely! It would make a lovely newborn gift, birthday or Baptism or Christening gift....or even a great Easter present! For young or old alike!

Please note that shipping prices are approximate and I have quoted only the least expensive method of shipment. Please convo me if you wish to have faster and therefore more expensive delivery.
