Dog and Pot pin

by Maxwell Harrison

25mm metal pin badge.

Antique copper finish.

Considered the coal hole “Holy Grail” by some, the plate outside 77 Stamford Street is the only one left of its kind. Cast by J.W. Cunningham & Co, it depicts a dog with its head in a pot; which became a recognised symbol for a blacksmith’s shop in that locality.

Presented on an information card.
