He is rather a rare old boy though dating to C1930 and a large old boy also the likes of which you will not find and see too often either as he measures a rather impressive 22" from his seated base to the tip of his ear !
His seated depth is approximately 9" and width is 11" at his widest part.
As to Winston makers I have to say I am not sure currently he might possibly be English but he could also be French .
His eyes I feel with their felt backing could be a leading clue along with his distinctive long vertically stitched nose with outer longer stitches at each end to attributing him positively to a maker though (his nose stitching is / clear glass eyes are rather similar in style to the French M Pintel fils)
His eyes and nose, collar and mouth stitching are all original and factory given to him ,and we have given him his little hanging 'Woof' bone on his collar.
Winston is stuffed solidly throughout with woodwool , his ears are wired inside so they stand up and possibly his front legs are also wired internally too to support him .
He has a fair coverage all over of mohair which once upon a time was possibly pink in parts or all pink because his little tail underneath him is still showing a light pink colour in parts!
His cheeks at the side of his mouth are in a peachy pink material which was probably peach/pink coloured velvet once but over the years it has lost its velvet pile but you can still see and feel a little in parts though.
Winston has some general thinning and losses in parts to his mohair coverage but in general he still has a pretty good coverage over all.
Wonderful Old Winston here would make a truly outstanding , and very impressive looking French bulldog to a collection for sure !
