    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.

      Thanks for the Loves! I probably will never have him restored, too concerned that it would be a person that hadn't worked with papier-mache and might mess him up or not use the correct paint. I've seen some of these that were horribly 'restored'.

      Preservation is fine, so long as the coating is UV resistant and crystal clear, but restoration is not needed. It looks great as it is.
