English Estates: Loewe & Co. 'Rhodesian' Smooth Bent Bulldog (pre-1968)
Product Number: 004-002-19150
Perhaps Loewe & Co. were aiming for the ironic by stamping "Rhodesian" on this bent Bulldog as both feature beadlines around the bowl but the firm-lined diamond shank identifies this offering as a Bulldog. The aforementioned beadlines sit perched directly above the transition while the inclusion of a tapered stem on this design helps keep the lines of the shank clean, consistent, and sleek. Fashioned sometime prior to 1968, this piece remains in great condition and would be an excellent addition to any collection of English classics.- Jeffery Sitts
