His Masters Voice large store display 'Nipper' dog by Old King Cole Papier-Mache Company of Canton, Ohio. These were only available to RCA Victor dealers in the later 1930's. He stands 38" high x 17" wide (hip to hip) x 35 1/2 " length (nose to tail).
This poor fellow has never been to a preservationist, even though I've been tempted for many years. I think the effects of time have given him a rather stoic and resigned look as he guards my music room. It still surprises me how many people are startled when they see him sitting there..... especially smaller children. They tend to be afraid of him until they can touch him.
