Search the web for rabbit figural Depression glass. If yours opens up, like a box, it's likely a candy or cotton ball holder. The Glass Chalet website has pictures of the chikens and rabbits and other figurals - www.glasschalet.com

If I understand what you are saying, you have a covered dish with the cover being a rabbit with ears laid back.
You say it's like a Hen on a nest type of glass, so I guess that it's opaque, like slag or milk glass.
This type of thing has been much reproduced....but Indiana Glass did make some old Rabbit on a nest dishes in slag glass.
You don't say how big it is...
It could be made in the '60 or it could be made in the 1880's. Can't say without a picture.

...and here's my 2005 Chinese version from the $ store. I know it's crude compared to the "real" stuff, but the price was right for Easter Candy:

Hens on a nest vary greatly in size...I have a very tiny and have seen ones that are huge.
You say "brown" but no mention of it's opaque like slag glass or clear glass.
I suppose it could be European but the animals on the nest were pretty much an American thing.
