Cast Iron HMV Dog with Gramophone


Categories: ,

A cast iron model featuring Nipper the His Master’s Voice dog.

Nipper the dog was born in Bristol, England in 1884 and so named because of his tendency to nip the backs of visitors’ legs. When his first master Mark Barraud died destitute in Bristol in 1887, Nipper was taken to Liverpool in Lancashire, England by Mark’s younger brother Francis, a painter. In Liverpool Nipper discovered the Phonograph, a cylinder recording and playing machine and Francis Barraud “often noticed how puzzled he was to make out where the voice came from”. The painting of this scene is now synonymous with HMV.
