This is a brass statue measuring 5 1/2 inches high.
We got it from Peter of Nottingham in England.
Peter`s mother always said that
the statue was of Mick The Miller and that it was made at the
time he was famous.
We think the statue
and story are a lovely piece of memorablia and we think that
it`s best to describe it
in Peter`s own words......
"The statue was always referred to as Mick while
I was living at home and my mother told me that he was a famous racing dog.
When Mick came into my possession we moved to Linconshire
and he got packed in a box and went into the loft, but twenty
years on we have moved back to Nottinghamshire and whilst
sorting the boxes I came across old Mick.
I brought him to the kitchen where he sits in the windowsill and
was spotted by two ladies who walked their greyhounds who
I decided to go on the computer and do some research, hence
that`s how I found you. I hope this has been of interest to you as
it has been to me.
Needless to say it was of great interest to us
and we trust that you the viewer will think so too.
Many thanks to Peter for making contact with us.
