SOLD

 

An extremely rare late Victorian dog's collar. The size of this collar suggests that it must have been worn by a large, powerful dog, most likely a guard dog. The wide leather strap has an outer layer of linked brass plates, each with a pyramid-pointed stud. This 'armour' would have protected the neck of the dog, should it have been attacked by another.

 

The brass elements have remnants of the original nickel-plating on them. There is the dog owner's name and address scribed on the ring plate - 'H. J. WHITE ESQ., 12 APSLEY CRESCENT, BRADFORD, YORKS'.

 

Size given is for the maximum diameter, but the collar is adjustable and it can reduce down to 16cm in width.
