 Product Description

Nipper

Original 1950s RCA logo dog, 36" tall x 42" from nose to tail and one of the most famous trademarks in music advertising history. Nipper was born in 1884 in Bristol, England. He was named Nipper because he would bite the backs of visitors' legs. He lived with his owner, Mark Henry Barraud, in the Prince's Theatre where Barraud was a scenery designer. When he died in 1887, his brothers took care of the dog and also received a gramophone, on which Barraud had recorded his voice. Listening to the sound of their deceased loved one, the brothers watched as Nipper sat down by the gramophone and cocked his head at the sound of...."his master's voice". Nipper himself died of natural causes in 1895 and was buried in Kingston upon Thames in Clarence Street, that later became a branch of Lloyds Bank. On the entrance wall of the bank, a brass plaque commemorates the terrier, Nipper, that lies beneath the building.
