Dead Ringer Prototype

A charity fundraiser to benefit the Hampshire Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue in Farnborough Hants, England began December 20, 1999, on eBay.

The HK House of Peers, Harmony Ball Company and Martin Perry presented a rare and unique prototype of Dead Ringer, a Peter Calvesbert Treasure Jest, in HOP's fifth special charity event.

Dead Ringer PrototypeThe Hampshire Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue was brought to HOP's attention by Martin Perry and Peter Copplestone. Peter has been working with the organization and an auxiliary organization, Bulldog Rescue for over six years. HSBTR picks up dogs, from areas covering the South of England, that have been mistreated or abandoned. Fifteen dedicated individuals from both organizations rescue approximately 20 dogs per year from mistreatment and neglect. The dogs are provided veterinary care and placed in caring, loving homes. A large database is maintained containing names of people who are looking to care and give these neglected dogs new homes. Each home is check for suitability before placement. The auxiliary organization, Bulldog Rescue, will receive twenty percent (20%) of the proceeds from this auction.

The hallmarks indicate the Infinity version, but instead of Winston Churchill in the large interior, there's the face of a very brave cat! The smaller interior is empty.Dead Ringer Prototype - Bottom

The colors on this piece are vivid, typical of special prototype painting. Martin Perry signed and dated the base '20.11.99' (November 20, 1999), authenticating it as a Harmony Kingdom prototype.
