Made from Italian Plateaux with a hand cut German Ebonite Half saddle stem with an integral tenon. A graceful but somewhat squat Bulldog with a good deal of Danish influence. Nice ring grain blast. However, it has major issues that prevent it from being stamped and graded. a. two flaws blasted out and b. the tenon and mortise, while matching, are shorter than I normally like. Still, I love the look and feel of this piece over all and it was a heartbreaker. I haven't decided it's fate yet. I might sell it as a second, but I'm leaning toward keeping it.
