This GDR Easter Bunny always used to freak me out and, to be honest, it still does. These eyes just seem to follow you, like in an old oil painting. I am not sure when it was produced but I found a version from the 50s that did look a bit different in design. Maybe 70s?
Unfortunately, this bunny candy container is missing the pannier on the back. It has been very likely produced by VEB Sesta Sebnitz, Saxony. This company specialized in plastic goods, decorations and household items like cutlery. While it looks and feels like odd plastic, it is very likely made out of papier-mâché.
The avid reader of this blog knows that the internet is not incredibly useful when it comes to GDR items.
There are later versions that had the identical bunny head but the body was see-trough plastic, which makes it even more creepy.
So, for this Wordless Wednesday I took my GDR Easter Bunny outside to the crocus meadow in the park and had a bit of fun. You’d be surprised what a hot spot for photos this place is in Spring! (Well, with everything closed there is really not much else to do.)
Enjoy the first sings of Spring or Fall depending on your hemisphere. Either way, it’s a great time for projects.
Thanks for flying with be kitschig. Have a happy Hump Day.
