A fantastic example of an antique hunting dogs collar.
A wonderfully well & exceptionally original made piece in thick leather & bronze, adorned with a large pyramid studs & an oversized brass bell. The collar is adjustable & the brass split ring attached the bell also locks the collar into place (the bell can also be fastened to the loop on the other side allowing a small padlock to used to fasten the clasp). The collar is a particularly large example & the metalwork boasts a wonderful age related patina.
An unusual, tactile & handsome example.
Late 19th / early 20th century.
Wear commensurate with age & use, good untouched condition. The leather lining is coming away from the bronze band in places but remains completely secure. 65cm in length once open.
