                   THE ORIGIN OF THE CREME D'ARGENT

        The history of the Creme D'Argent rabbit is surrounded in antiquity. It, like many of its counterparts, is not a true original genus of the rabbit family. The Flemish Giant, Dutch, Rhinelander, etc. date so far back into the past than recorded manufactured breeds as in most that we know today. The Creme D'Argent originated in France, as did its counterpart--the Champagne D'Argent. The primary difference is the color. The creme made its appearance in this country in 1926 and since then has attracted quite a following, having many admirers because of their luxurious colored fur. The name Creme D'Argent, is French meaning the silver of 'creme silver,' referring to the animal's magnificent color. It is, however, highly unlikely that the D'Argent, as we know it today, is a type product of France entirely.

        One of the breeds brought into Western Europe was the Silver who is the fore bearer of our Creme D'Argent today. The practice of cross-breeding the Silver with local domesticated breeds became quite popular. With the silver factor being a dominant gene, a silvered product was produced of which became the ancestors of the present day Creme. It was in the Champagne districts of France that French rabbit breeders developed the D'Argent rabbit, later naming these D'Argents, Champagne D'Argents. It is generally believed that the Creme is the production of cross-breeding the Silver with the fawn Flemish Giant or Belgian Hare. Both of these breeds became popular through Western Europe, even though it was the British that later refined them.
