A gorgeous chunky antique dog collar.
Mid 19th century it is made from stong double linked steel chain links with a twist lockable clasp with various settings, the front of the collar has a steel plaque with an engraved brass insert.
It is a mastiff or guard dog style collar but as it is adjustable it could be used for many breeds.
The collar plaque is engraved with J Ward, Ashby Z for Ashby De La Zouch.
The collar comes with a long fancy key, not original to it but works well with the lock and is of a similar age.
This collar has the original makers mark etched into the lock side which is Hiatt.
Good condition overall with some rusting and surface marks commensurate with age.
Approximate size including frame is:
16.5" max setting length
2.75" plaque width
