Royal Doulton Bulldog Union Jack
On M's desk in SkyFall we can spot a small statue of a dog with a british flag. This statue is a Bulldog with Union Jack created by Royal Doulton, an English company producing tableware and collectables since 1815.
The statue survives the attack on M's office and appears on her desk in the new underground offices. At the end of the film, when Bond receives the bulldog statue in a box, M's real name is subtly revealed. On a tag on the black box is written: "From the Estate of Olivia Mansfield Bequeathed to James Bond".
A reproduction of the original model seen in SkyFall was made available in October 2012. This new limited 007 SkyFall edition of the Royal Doulton Bulldog with British flag can be purchased at the official Royal Doulton website for £50 (UK), €64 (Europe) or $70 in the USA. This edition is called 'Jack' and has a 007 backstamp and specially printed box sleeve.
The Jack and Royal Doulton Bulldogs Alfie and Patch figurines herald a new series based on the iconic Bulldog, which was originally modelled by Royal Doulton’s great art director Charles Noke and launched in 1941.
After World War I patriotic bulldogs draped with Union Jacks were introduced into the Royal Doulton collection, because the bulldog was a symbol for the dogged determination of British people. The statues were reintroduced during World War II. These original statues can fetch high prices (see eBay for example) but be aware of many replicas that are also circulating.
