❤️"His Masters Voice" - Nipper ❤️The RCA Mascot
The image of the adorable little puppy sitting with a cocked head next to a gramophone is etched into our collective minds.
Nipper (1884–1895) was a dog from Bristol, England, who served as the model for a painting by Francis Barraud titled "His Master's Voice".
Nipper was a mixed-breed dog and probably part Jack Russell Terrier, or "part Bull Terrier". He was named Nipper because he would "nip" the backs of visitors' legs.
Nipper’s story stretches back to #Bristol where scenic artist Francis Barraud of London saw his little dog, Nipper, sitting attentively in front of the talking machine. Barraud was so impressed that he decided to put it on canvas.
Berard tried several times to publish his painting but was repeatably told that:
The “His Masters Voice” trademark is still instantly recognized today and is in the top 10 of “Famous Brands of the 20th Century”. #Nipper has not only become the famous symbol of RCA, but also an enduring symbol to the world. (dogco)
Not a bad accomplishment for a small pup from #Bristol, #England
The iconic image of Nipper looking into a phonograph became an international symbol of quality and excellence.
