Royal Doulton Bulldog Draped In Union Jack Matt Blue Flag Medium Dog Model D5913 For Sale
Royal Doulton Bulldog Draped In Union Jack Matt Blue Flag Medium Dog Model D5913 DescriptionDescription
For saleis a bulldog manufactured by the world famous Royal Doulton factory in Stoke on Trent, England.
Itfeatures a seated, medium sized bulldog, draped in a Union Jack flag. It was issued between the years of 1941 and 1961 although this appears to be a very early model.
Unusually the blue colouration on the flag has a matte finish, and appears to be unglazed, whereas all the other sections are glazed.
It would seem unlikely that the glaze has worn away so specifically in these areas and I would therefore conclude that this is as intended and it is factory consistent.
It is possible that this is an experimental piece and the finish is intended. I have never seen a similar example and believe that it may be a rare find.
I have included several photographs for your reference and you will see that there is also a possibility that there may have been some overpainting of the blue at some time in the past.
There are no chips or cracks to the dog, although there is some crazing and a little discolouration through ageing.Size and Weight
