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), €57 (Europe) or $70 in the USA. This edition is called 'Jack' and has a 007 backstamp and specially printed box sleeve.

Earlier in 2014, the new Royal Doulton website was launched, after being offline for a long time. The statue was available again for £50 in the UK but is currently sold out. You can now find it on Amazon.co.uk (UK). In the US, the statue is available for a final sale price of $40 (see coupon code above) or find it on Amazon.com (USA) or take a look on eBay where usually many Bulldogs are available.
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.
In 2014, a new member was added to the family: Bulldog Sam ($70), with an American Flag draped on his back.
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.
