Rare Vintage Bonzo Character Dog Ornament By G.e.studdy:
I have had this wonderful Bonzo Dog Ornament in my collection for 30 years. I bought him from an Antique Shop in Australia . I fell in love with his character and didn't even know anything about Bonzo at the time. It is now time to pass him on to new owners.
He is chunky 5 1/2 inches tall and the base is 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches at the widest parts. He is made of some kind of breakable pottery but seems to have a waxy feel to him like a soapstone but alas I never did find out his true substance and the dealer didn't say at the time. He is signed on the back of the base G.E. Study and he has a metal and paper label around his neck attached with wire but whatever it used to have printed on there isn't there anymore and I have no idea how long this has been with him. His foot has been broken off at some point many years ago and repaired and he has a chip on the back of his ear hard to see but I have taken a photo of both problems and they still looks the same colour as he is just with a darker line on the foot repair. I would say he was probably made around the 1920's to 1930's as he was very popular at this time when lots of merchandise was produced. It was in 1912 that G.E Study started to draw this comical character for the Sketch and he soon became very popular.I haven't seen another like him and despite his damage I am sure he is very rare and a must for those of you who collect Bonzo.
