A very fine original cast Bronze English Bulldog, signed by Chas Curry, an English Sculptor working in the late 19th to early 20th Century Bronze...approx. date of this Solid Bronze is 1908.
This Bulldog with a Proud Stance is beautifully modeled, with fine chasing work after being cast...his skin is realistically folded and rippled, showing every muscle of this very strong breed. And what a "mug" !! He is ready to defend you, no questions asked!!
He wears a studded Collar with a nameplate (but no name), and he is clearly a Male!! Signed on his belly is "Chas Curry Sculpt Copyright". Unliked many bronze figures, he is of a solid casting, unique for his size, and a goodly weight. He would make a great paperweight on your Desk.
He is just shy of 10" long nose to tail, and stands approx. 6" tall. He has a wonderful rich Patina, and is in very good condition. He has been very happy in our collection, and is being offered after loving him for over 30 years!
An excellent addition to your collection, be it Bulldogs or Bronzes...he will proudly defend your home...
