History of the Champagne d’ Argent Rabbit

Originally Champagnes were raised in France and called “French Silvers”. In 1920 they were introduced to England and became one of the more popular breeds of rabbits that were shown at the time. Around 1923 to 1925 they came to the U.S.  They had long, silky loose lying fur and were very dark in color almost resembling the Silver Fox. At that time all breeds were lumped into one club, but this did not prove to be successful. The first Champagne club was chartered by A.R.B.A. on October 21, 1931. Later Lewis J. Griffin was credited with the improving of the color of Champagnes with the close lying fur that they have today.
