PenDelfin or PenDelphin? It’s All In The Name!

PenDelfin rabbits are one of our specialities, here at Perfect Pieces. We always offer a wide range of retired rabbits, Family Circle Club rabbits and PenDelfin display stands for sale. A question we’ve been asked in the past quite a few times is – How do you spell PenDelfin?

We see many variations of the name around, here are some examples I’ve spotted recently:

Pen Delfin





Pen Delphin

So, the question remains which one is correct? Of course if you’re an avid PenDelfin collector you’ll have many rabbits in your home to check and if you’ve read any of the Perfect Pieces pages correctly you’ll know! It is of course PenDelfin.

What started out as a hobby for two ladies – Jean Walmsley Heap and Jeannie Todd, back in 1953 in the shadow of the Pendle “Witch” hill near Burnley in Lancashire has become a popular worldwide collecting interest. Although PenDelfin rabbits are still in production today, the company has been sold off and the rabbits are now made in China – and you can certainly tell the difference! That’s why we focus only on British-made older PenDelfin rabbits, which are just as Jean and Jeannie meant them to be.
