Aquatint etching Labrador Retriever Dual Champion "Bramshaw Bob" swimming by Reuben Ward Binks (1880 - 1950)

Aquatint etching of a Labrador Retriever Dual Champion " Bramshaw Bob " swimming by Reuben Ward Binks (1880 - 1950). Signed in pencil bottom right "Ward Binks pinxt sculpt", and titled in pencil bottom left "Bramshaw Bob". It is unclear why Binks signed this “pinxt sculpt”, but it makes this copy a rare hand touched artist proof. Ward Binks aquatint etchings were published Arthur A Greatorex, 14 Grafton St., Bond St., London. English, circa 1940.


In the 1920s and 1930s, regardless of the field and show bench, it was the exclusive place of Countess Howe's Banchory Kennels. One such dog was Dual Ch. Bramshaw Bob, whose sire was Ch. Ingleston Ben and dam Bramshaw Brimble. Bramshaw Bob was very successful wining 27 CC and was first at Crufts in both 1932 and 1933.
