A Fabulous Antique Early 19th Century Braided Leather Dog Collar With Named Brass Tag For A Dog Called ‘Laddie’ Who Lived At 52 Lucknow Drive, Sutton In Ashfield, Notts’.
There Is A Very Endearing Make-Do Feel To This Collar, With String Being Added To Act As An Additional Holder And The Brass Tag Having Been Naively Hand Scratched. To The Front Of The Brass Tag Is The Dog’s Name ‘Laddie’, Along With A Scratched Seascape Of Some Flying Seagulls And The Sea. It Must Have Enjoyed Coastal Walks! To The Back Of The Tag Is The Address.
The Brass Tag Itself Appears To Have Been Attached To The Collar In A Sweet Make-Do Fashion Too.
Research Suggests That ‘Upchurch’ Was In Fact The Family Name.
So, It Was Worn By ‘Laddie Upchurch’ And He Loved A Good Coastal Walk!
An Utterly Charming Piece!
Condition is good, commensurate with age and use. As explained, a make-do aesthetic, but structurally sound and functions well.
