Ex shop display large Merrythought Rabbit
(Jersey Channel Islands UK)
Hi can someone please let me know how much my Merrythought Rabbit is worth? I have had it since 1953. It is approximately 3ft to 3ft 6inches tall, pink & white with bells in its ears. It has fixed eyes and is wearing a red and white gingham dress with a white ruffle around the neck an it also has red and white gingham feet. It also has a felt hair slide on its head. I believe it is mohair and was bought for me by my parents from a toy shop in Sheffield UK when I was a year old. It was played with when I was little but it is now in a black bag on top of the wardrobe. The feet are in need of a little repair and it needs cleaning I believe the feet are stuffed with a straw like material. I have tried numerous website to find a value for it but I haven’t seen a shop display one for sale or even one as big as this one. I would like to sell my rabbit as my granddaughter isn’t interested in having it so I would like it to go to a good home with a collector who would be able to give it some TLC and look after it for years to come. Any feedback would be much appreciated or even if someone could point me in the right direction for a valuation. Thank you in advance.
