The beautifully weathered cast stone British Bulldog displaying the original time worn paint, with the dog having a large brown and black studded collar, to a black painted shaped base, the whole surviving from the second quarter of twentieth century England.

The condition of the whole is pleasing with a good even spread of weathering commensurate with exposure to the elements giving it an evocative all-round character and colour. There are very small nibbled losses and chips, but nothing of concern; please refer to the photographs for a full visual reference.

There are more modern stone interpretations of the bulldog on the market, imitating this cast, but fewer of this date line and fewer still with such superb original time-worn paintwork and texture.

The well-loved British Bulldog or ‘bully’ as they are fondly known are dependable, gentle dogs and they are notorious for snoring, grunting, drooling, and flatulence.

A beautiful bully, minus the, well, wind.
