Here is a find of mine from a local estate sale, I know it is a candy container but could only find one that has sold recently and would like any and all info some of you may have ( age etc). There is whats left of a gold color band around the neck area and the legs act as stands when set on its face. The rabbit is about 5 1/2 X 2 inches. Sadly there was no lid for it and it is in perfect shape with no chips etc.

Corey, I found your rabbit listed in a 2002 & 2003 auction catalog from which we bought a number of items. It was the Bob & Beka Mebane collection offered through Glass-Works Auctions as lot # 907 and brought $80 with lid and a bit more paint. Apparently there is another book on Candy Containers and is listed as E&A-614. What the E&A stands for I don't know. There is another variant of a similar figure in that catalog that sold for $70, same condition but not as attractive. Hope this helps some. Jim

Having a book you paid $10 for and finding your 25¢ item is maybe worth $1000 is better than finding you paid $1000 dollars for a 25¢ item because you didn't have the book. Did that make sense? [:D]
