Howard Nestingen received this rabbit as a gift from his parents in 1931. His father was a prosperous dentist in Westby, WI. The family was not much affected by the Depression. Howard always treasured the Rabbit. His daughter recalls it was kept in the attic and brought out in the spring for Easter.

The rabbit seems to be modeled after Lewis Carroll’s White Rabbit in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”
