If you’re looking to buy a Christmas present for a PenDelfin collector then why not consider a PenDelfin display stand? These can be brilliant for adding variety and a real-life feeling to a PenDelfin collection.
The PenDelfin Studios produced a wide range of display stands over the years, some of which were only made for limited periods. They come in all shapes and sizes, so there really is usually one that’s perfect for every PenDelfin collection! Here is a small selection of the range of PenDelfin stands we currently have for sale:
The original PenDelfin Bandstand – this is the first version of the Bandstand that PenDelfin produced, making it quite an early PenDelfin display stand. It has 7 steps allowing lots of musical PenDelfins to stand on it:
The PenDelfin Toyshop is a popular stand. It is very detailed in design and is the perfect home for the PenDelfin Jacky rabbit. This PenDelfin stand is also retired from production:
Betsy Barge is a great fun boat shaped stand, quite unusual and perfect for around the PenDelfin Jetty and PenDelfin Shrimp Stand. This PenDelfin stand is also retired from production and allows your PenDelfin rabbits to sit inside a boat!

Designed by Jean Walmsley Heap this is an early piece of PenDelfin pottery only produced by the factory in the 1960’s – from c1966 until 1968. This PenDelfin piece isn’t your typical PenDelfin rabbit as you can’t see his head as it’s inside the wicker basket! He looks a bit like Winnie The Pooh when he got stuck in the tree trunk!
We have a wide range of retired PenDelfin rabbits for sale including many early PenDelfin pieces and some PenDelfin display stands. If you’re looking for a specific rabbit then do let us know as our PenDelfin stock is regularly changing.
The Uncle Soames rabbit was designed by Jean Walmsley Heap and is now retired from production. We know this is an earlier version of the model as he has large and impressive ears and has the early desirable PenDelfin butterfly label on his base which was used by the pottery in the late 1950’s.
The Uncle Soames rabbit was first introduced into the PenDelfiun rabbit family in c1959, making him one of the earlier PenDelfin rabbits – a perfect companion for Aunt Agatha!
We have a wide selection of retired PenDelfin rabbits for sale including another of Uncle Soames companions – the PenDelfin Dungaree father!
The PenDelfin Family Circle collectors club is to close in March 2013, according to an announcement on the PenDelfin website.
The decision means that the Family Circle’s twentieth birthday will be its last. To mark the occasion, PenDelfin’s owner Xystos is promising that this year’s Model of the Year and Membership Gift will be something special, as will a number of new models that will be introduced this year.
The question now remains what is happening to PenDelfin as a whole? Since PenDelfin was taken over collectors have seen production of the popular bunny rabbits moved from its home in Burnley and now we have the closure of the collectors Family Circle club. Only time will tell what will happen next to this once very loveable collectable.
You can read the full PenDelfin Family Circle closure announcement on xystos.co.uk.
