Cotton velvet rabbit. Chenille carrot.  They go hand in hand, even though they're pin cushions. These were made at home in Vermont c1950s.  I don't think have ever felt the prick of a pin.  Who could stick pins into them?? They're too cute.  The nap of the rabbit's velvet is worn.  Otherwise, he's in very great condition.  Don't you love his leaping form?  He is hand stitched and his sweet black eyes are thread. The carrot's leaves are raffia and the carrot is also hand stitched.  The chenille is worn only in a few small, isolated spots, and shows the tiniest bit of fade here and there. The raffia is all there and attached just fine.  Rabbit 9" L.  Carrot 8"L not including the raffia.  They've been together since they were born.  We don't have it in our hearts to separate them.  The price is for both.
