Bunnykins Aussie Explorer teapot modeled by Shane Ridge and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in a 1996 special edition of 2,500. The intrepid Aussie Explorer is a seasoned adventurer who regularly explores uncharted regions of the outback both for pleasure and for hire. Royal Doulton Bunnykins tableware and figurines are popular ceramic designs manufactured as nursery dishes and collectible figurines. It originated with artwork by Sister Mary Barbara Bailey, the daughter of Cuthbert Bailey, general manager of Doulton during the 1930s. Sister Mary Barbara provided illustrations to the designers of Royal Doulton. The Explorer's left arm holding a boomerang forms the handle of the teapot while a map of Australia forms the spout.
